    The collection, formed over a thirty-five year period, assembles politics first and early American editions of influential and significant works of English and European thought from the seventeenth through early nineteenth centuries. The collection charts the intellectual foundations of American activity in the field of politics  philosophy, theology, medicine, science, mathematics, economics, travel, and education. The original editions were published before 1825; the American editions date from 1729 though the mid-nineteenth century (most before 1820).
