Titre : The First White House Library: A History and...

Éditeur : Pennsylvania State University Press, United States

Date d'édition : 2010

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Published in association with the Bibliographical Society of America and the National First Ladies Library Although many early U.S. presidents were avid readers and book collectors--George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, to name a few--they usually brought their own books to the White House and removed them at the end of their terms. It was not until 1850 that Millard and Abigail Fillmore established the first official White House collection. This catalogue of the library that they assembled not only reveals much about their own preoccupations and interests and those of the age they lived in, but also provides insight into American library history, reading history, and book trade and distribution networks. Aside from the editor, the contributors are William Allman, Elizabeth Thacker-Estrada, and Sean Wilentz. For more information about the National First Ladies Libraries visit //.
