LCP Collections on Loan

We recently had a few items that were on loan to other institutions returned to us and it got me thinking about where else people can see Library Company collections outside of our building. If anyone is going to be in New York City, be sure to visit the Morgan Library & Museum to see their current exhibition Charles Dickens at 200 ( Described by the New York Times as an “immensely rich exhibition of manuscripts, photographs, letters, illustrations and artifacts,” the exhibition includes a daguerreotype portrait of Dickens from our collection. Closer to home, we have a print and pamphlet relating to Chang and Eng, 19th century co-joined twins, at the Mutter Museum’s Through the Weeping Glass exhibition, and Civil War ephemera including envelopes, political campaign cards and an anti-slavery token on view in an exhibition entitled Philadelphia 1861: The Coming Storm at the Union League’s new Heritage Center.
