In the Collins Gallery

Believing that an "ample and well chosen Assortment of Books" could serve both intellectual and political purposes, President John Adams (1735-1826) assembled one of the greatest private libraries in early America. The traveling exhibition is based upon the gallery exhibition of the same name mounted by the Boston Public Library in 2006, the first public display of Adams's complete 3,500-book collection. The John Adams Library has been on deposit at the Boston Public Library since 1894.
