English and European Authors

During the past three decades AAS has made serious efforts to collect American editions of English and European authors of the later nineteenth century. (One must remember that anything printed before 1821 in what is now the United States was for many years earlier energetically gathered in.) For example, AAS has developed significant collections of Dickens and the other great (and not so great) nineteenth-century English authors, as well as Jules Verne, Russian authors, Paul de Kock, and Alexandre Dumas. The Society has also sought sets of the various nineteenth-century American publishers' series. The earliest American editions of important philosophical, scientific, and political works by European authors also are of great interest and are well represented on the Society's shelves.
