The Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia
Many of the world’s greatest literary treasures reside in The Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia, an 1860s row house that holds the personal collection of the Rosenbach brothers, who dealt in fine and decorative art, rare books and manuscripts. Perhaps the best-known feature of the collection is James Joyce’s manuscript for Ulysses, but equally impressive are more than 600 Lewis Carroll books, Shakespeare’s 1664 folio and important first editions of Don Quixote and other works by Cervantes.
