Library Company Material on Display at Swann Galleries

Antebellum and Civil War-era highlights of the Library Company’s African Americana Collection will be on display at Swann Auction Galleries from March 22 to 26. In conjunction with its Printed & Manuscript African Americana sale on March 27, Swann Galleries is generously helping to promote the Library Company’s Program in African American History—maintaining a longstanding tradition of collaboration between our two institutions.

Swann Galleries specialist Wyatt Houston Day, who founded that company’s preeminent African Americana Department, and Library Company Curator of African American History Krystal Appiah are coordinating to ensure that the display of materials from the Library Company collections illuminates and augments the material that will be up for auction. Swann Galleries was host to a similar exhibition in 2007, shortly after the Library Company's 275th birthday.

Swann Galleries, 104 East 25th Street, New York, NY 10010, 212-254-4710,
