These volumes, many inscribed, provide a glimpse into the family's interests, tastes, and intellectual pursuits over the century. It is not surprising that the most common subject/genre of literature is education, including foreign languages, since books in the 19th century were meant to be studied. Religion, biography, poetry, and fiction followed. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=272356 Merchant's House Museum Merchant's House Museum
