These Are a Few of Our Favorite Things

Library Company staff are often asked to name their favorite things in the collection, and their answers frequently include the kinds of delightful surprises from deep within the stacks that only those with decades of experience can provide. So we thought it might be fun to collect some of them in a series of blog posts. Librarian Jim Green, who presents the first offering, laments that picking his favorite thing from among more than half a million books and objects in our collections is akin to being asked to single out one’s favorite child. Nonetheless, he explains his special attachment to our first edition of Charles Knowlton’s Fruits of Philosophy from 1832 in today’s Beyond the Reading Room blog post. Check back each week through the fall as a different member of the staff shares his or her own favorite.
