Traditions & Culture of Collecting Articles by and about Collectors, Librarians, and Booksellers

Scientists’ Libraries: A Handlist of Printed Sources Ellen B. Wells

Originally published in Annals of Science 40 (1983): 317-389


Among those materials frequently given low priority for processing by libraries for their permanent shelves are catalogues from antiquarian book dealers. Yet many are useful to historians of science, particularly those listing books and manuscripts owned by scientists and men of science.

The libraries of a few famous and well-studied figures have been described, for example, Boyle and Ray. Otherwise unheralded persons have had their collections revealed, such as Ugolino d’Inghilterra (died 1294), by means of articles on their estate inventories. But many await their researchers, almost lost in card catalogues, in bibliographies and in neglected corners of library acquisition departments.

This list is a preliminary survey and must be regarded as such. It cites about 1,200 titles relating to about 880 scientists. Addenda and corrigenda are requested. The list was compiled from bibliographic sources and by personal inspection of the large collections of book sales catalogues at the Library of Congress, the Grolier Club, and other repositories.

All but two of the scientists were men; 640 were physicians, 270 were American, and of the Americans, 220 were physicians. By profession, the most numerous of the non-physicians as a whole were, in descending order: mathematicians, botanists, chemists, naturalists, astronomers, zoologists and engineers. Well below them, under eighteen names in a category, came apothecaries, dentists, geologists and physicists (these latter would total fifteen if one included natural philosophers).

The two women were both physicians: Aletta Jacobs Gerritsen (Dutch, died 1929) who amassed a collection on feminism now at the University of Kansas, and Clara Barrus (American, died 1931) who was literary executor for the estate of naturalist John Burroughs, and who collected American autographs.


The bibliography lists primary and secondary publications concerning hooks and manuscripts collected by scientists. Although card catalogues or manuscript inventories of a given scientist’s library may exist, they are not included unless published.

Materials in Western European languages have been listed, of any date. Catalogues which offer for sale several collections lumped together, often indistinguishably, are mostly excluded.

The printed sources consist primarily of catalogues of collections: some compiled -by grateful libraries to whom these collections were donated, but for the most part they are sale catalogues published by auction houses disposing of estates. Many sale catalogues date from the year following the owner’s death; some from the later death of the widow. One collection, that of Boston physician James Hyndman, was sold well before his demise, in the year following his marriage.

The catalogues reflect the evolution of book collections from accumulation to real collection, honed to defined bibliophilic and bibliographic purposes. The earliest collections seem to be books accumulated as working tools, useful for the evidence of available information to the scientist. Literary collections developed as a fashionable cultural activity, particularly reflecting how nineteenth-century American physicians achieved income and leisure to read and collect. Collections built to show the development of early science, collected by scientists, seem to be a late nineteenth- or early twentieth-century phenomenon, exemplified by Sir William Osler and Herbert McLean Evans.

For ’scientist’ read: persons who have pursued scientific endeavours as well as those who had training in a field of science, engineering or medicine. This includes many ’non-degree’ people by modern standards, amateurs and cognoscenti of various descriptions, but described as ’men of science’.


The list is arranged alphabetically by the name of the scientist owner. Listed under the owner’s name (given in capital and small capital letters except where it is a cross reference) are sale catalogues by title, followed by any secondary material, listed alphabetically by author or compiler. Sale catalogues are given by title, inasmuch as the ’publisher’ is almost invariably the auction sale house.

Some titles, especially those given in Munby and McKay and unverified elsewhere, are greatly abbreviated. Pagination (not detailed) is given where found, with approximate number of titles cited (in lots if a sale, or items if a bibliography). As with titles, pagination may be incomplete or unknown.

Bibliographical citations are provided when considered to be useful, and when the item is not readily identified in major reference works such as the National Union Catalog, Pre-1956 Imprints. Added information is occasionally given, but generally eschewed. The style followed is that of the University of Chicago Press, A Manual of Style (Chicago, 1969), for the humanities.

Historical notes

The earliest surviving sale catalogue may be that of Lazarus Seaman, D.D., whose collection was sold in 1676.1A. N. L. Munby, British Book Sale Catalogues 1676-1800 (London 1977), p. 1. The earliest surviving sale catalogue of a scientist appears  to be that of the sale of Jean Riolan’s collection in 1654. Perhaps the earliest sale catalogue of an American scientist’s collection is that of mathematician Samuel Lee (1625-91) which was sold in 1693.

The book trade had begun to be recognizably differentiated in the mid-eighteenth century, as printers, editors and booksellers became separate professions and economic entities. Catalogues of books sold by these bookmen had been printed since the sixteenth century, the first one may have been Elzevier in Leyden, 1593.2G. Pollard, The Distribution of Books by Catalogue from the Invention of Printing to A.D. 1800 (Cambridge, 1965), p. 216. Many were printed on the occasions of the annual Frankfurt and Leipzig book fairs, as stock catalogues, called marts.

The practice of selling books by auction began in Leyden in the 1680s, when large Dutch collections came on the market, stimulating an interest in the antiquarian book trade. The sale of physician Richard Mead’s library in 1754 marks a watershed in a noticeable rise in prices of collectable books. By this time book auction sale catalogues were well established, and the format became relatively standardized, with broad subject arrangement, and some added annotations to the description of the books.3Ibid., p. 156. These annotations were influential not only in selling the books but ultimately in determining collecting trends. The French Revolution brought about the next great influx of books from large private libraries in what Graham Pollard would call the first Golden Age of book collecting.

By the end of the nineteenth century, the book trade had developed much as we know it now—booksellers of books in print, out of print and antiquarian booksellers, and even remainder dealers were-all flourishing.

The nineteenth-century libraries were fairly distinct from earlier libraries for several reasons. Men of prominence in preceding centuries had collected books as a facet of their public lives, as patrons of learning and of the arts and sciences. Their libraries were open to the small reading public. These collections, often assembled over several generations, were encylopaedic in nature and science books formed only one part of them. by the nineteenth century, there was a separation between private and public libraries.

Several factors contributed to the separation: the political upheavals in Europe brought many books on the market at the end of the eighteenth century. Rising literacy, a developing middle class interested in self-improvement and the material furnishings of upper class life, combined with the increasingly mechanized production of paper, printed books and cheaper binding. The specialization of education and professions added to an interest in and need for book collecting or accumulating in the first half of the nineteenth century. Public and lending (rental) libraries, purchase of books by subscription (or installment) also promoted reading.

The advent of the popular press and of books published in parts, as well as specialized periodicals, promoted reading as information, entertainment and for increasingly specialized groups.

Another stimulus to book collecting (as against accumulation for one’s professional work) was the appearance of guides for collectors. Bibliographies and catalogues of libraries had long been in existence, but two guides set purchasers in definite directions and gave them market information. Records of prices were included in Johannes Vogt’s Catalogus librorum rariorum, 1747, as did others which followed. In 1755, Guillaume Debure published what might be the first how-to book for collectors, the Museum Typographicum, expanded in the 1760s into seven volumes to become the Bibliographie Instructive, in which collectors were provided with suggestions on what to collect and how to identify the various editions. These guides sometimes assumed the same subject format as had the booksellers’ catalogues, and as had the renaissance church and noble libraries been arranged: theology, philosophy, jurisprudence, the arts, history.

Works of this nature have appeared ever since, the major ones available in the nineteenth century being those of Graesse, Brunet and Lowndes. By the end of the nineteenth century, special guides to parts of the published past appear, as the bulk of published titles mounted.

Jacques Charles Brunet’s Manuel du Libraire of 1865 listed nearly 32,000 titles. Of these, 5,700 were in science, 2,300 were in theology, 8,900 in literature and 11,600 in history. In his introduction, Brunet described main trends in collecting in the various areas. For instance, in jurisprudence, canon law of the fifteenth to sixteenth centuries was recommended. In science, he suggested books desirable for collecting were those that set out philosophical schools, or were distinguished by important discoveries. He had a personal preference for the fine eighteenth century natural history books, medicine and surgery before the seventeenth century and mathematics in Italy, France and Germany of the fifteenth to sixteenth centuries.

Guillaume Charles By, a surgeon whose library catalogue was published in 1809, was described in éloge as ’very interested in books that showed the progressive development of medicine’.4G. C. By, Catalogue de la Bibliothèque de feu M. By (Paris, 1809), pp. v -vii.

By the turn of the eighteenth to nineteenth century, the dealer stock catalogues were sometimes published annually, rather than on the occasion of an auction of a particular collection, which may have been a gradual development from book fair catalogues. Lackington of London, for instance, issued one in 1801 which had 21,868 numbered entries. Like many up to the mid-nineteenth century, there was a mixture of new and old materials.

The Lackington, Allen & Co., General Catalogue for 1815, listed well over 28,000 items, with many categories, including ’Curious, and rare books and manuscripts’. They were presented in sizes: folio, quarto, octavo and duodecimo. Most were religious, political and literary works of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, but perhaps as many as 50 of the 895 pages were devoted to medicine, chemistry, natural and experimental philosophy and mathematics. Newton’s Principia of 1687 sold for 12s. 6d.; LaPlace’s four-volume Méchanique Celeste, 1799, a new book, for £6 0s. 0d.

Henry Bohn’s 1840 catalogue, replete with printed material from the Phillips collection, arranged the 8,400 items by author, with a substantial subject index, focusing on Aldines, Elzeviers, English history and privately printed books. He placed no special emphasis on science. However, a Köhler catalogue from Leipzig (1850) listed 624 scientific books in a total of 3,347 offered. The costly ones were plate books of natural history. Catalogues for the more scholarly trade, at least in the sciences, were beginning to appear, and by mid-century many were listing batches of offprints under topic.

By the middle to late nineteenth century, the buying, selling and collecting of rare books had great appeal; societies of wealthier book collectors were founded in many countries, among the earliest being the Societe des Amis du Livre, founded in France in 1876, and the Grolier Club in 1884 in the United States. Ex-libris societies were formed for the purpose of encouraging artist-designed bookplates, collecting them and delving into their history. Annual compilations of book auction sales began to be published in 1888. The first edition of William Blades’ Enemies of Books appeared in 1880. Indeed, a golden age of book collecting flourished from the 1870s until the First World War.

While waiting for patients, James Wynn, a physician who moved to New York City in 1859, wrote a series of interesting newspaper articles published collectively in Private Libraries of New York. The collections he described often represented smaller pieces of the pie compared to the rather encylopaedic private libraries of the seventeenth and eighteenth century: now it was English literature, philosophy, jurisprudence, history of art, medicine, science.

After the First World War, the fashion or trend was to further reduce collection scope. Some collectors were proud of their small, exclusive, superb collections, displayed in a cabinet rather than occupying a whole library room, or wing of the establishment. There were now collectors of engineering between 1790 and 1820, or eighteenth-century dentistry or sixteenth-century herbals. I heard recently of several collectors specializing in cardiovascular disease!

Henri Beraldi, in an introduction to his personal catalogue of his collection, 1892, provided a maxim for his collecting philosophy: `Le plus beau, le plus rare, le plus pur’.5H. Béaraldi, Bibliothèque Henri Béraldi (Paris, 1934), p. 1.

As the centuries wore on, the numbers rose and content or style of libraries became more varied; more scientists collected, that is, deliberately sought to build collections on non-scientific topics. Even though the majority of physicians and others collected or accumulated books relating to their profession, some developed other lines. This trend in building special collections first appeared in the 1860s and has continued to the present day.

The non-scientific collections of scientists and physicians followed general trends in book collecting that were developing in America and Europe. Works in American history offered for sale in the 1860s suggest an interest in collecting Americana from the 1840s onward. Was this a time perhaps of rising patriotism in the United States? it was a physician, Nathan Broadsheet Shurtleff, who sold a copy of the Bay Psalm book in 1876. His library sold in 1,790 lots, very respectable for its time, but by no means exceptional. Other topical collections made by physicians in the 1880s and 1890s were: numismatics, botany and theology. By the 1880s, the word ’rare’ was often used to mean very old and scarce books. The distinction began to be made between a working scientific or medical library and a collection the contents of which were historical.

But few collections intended to show the history of science, engineering or medicine appeared before the end of the century. That is few which are presented in that manner. By the early nineteenth century, many collections of physicians featured some ’curious and rare’ books, but seemingly with no intention to use them as historical tools.

Late in the nineteenth century and early in the twentieth, the history of science and medicine began to develop into a discrete area of history: historical sections at professional meetings, journals, congresses; books about the history of science appear. Scholarly celebrations of anniversaries relating to famous scientific figures, such as Harvey, Faraday, Kepler, seem to be a twentieth century phenomenon.

In 1903, Schuyler Skaats Wheeler presented a landmark collection of books in electrical engineering to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers; in 1905, another American engineer and chemist, Willard Case, gave a smaller selection of works on electricity and chemistry to his home town library in Auburn, New York.

The great medical collectors, Klebs, Cushing and Osler particularly, stimulated collecting and study in the history of science and medicine and gave style to collecting competitively and cooperatively in one’s field of endeavour.

Osler exemplified the archtypical collector, scientific or otherwise. He had, by the turn of the century, consciously determined to develop a collection of books illustrating and supporting the history of medicine and science. With this in mind, and using available bibliographies, he visited bookshops and studied antiquarian book dealer catalogues and offers. He cabled for purchases, attended auctions, selected from books sent on approval, traded occasionally, and accepted gifts. He always visited book shops when traveling.6E. B. Wells, “Books for the Bibliotheca: Sir William Osler’s Book Bills”, Osler Library Newsletter, No. 26 (1977), 1-4.

At the 1918 American Medical Association meeting, Mortimer Frank exhibited 64 of his early medical books and provided a catalogue describing them. In the same year Lewis Pilcher issued his List of Books by Some of the Old Masters in Medicine and Surgery. Perhaps these could all be considered as predecessors of Herbert McLean Evans, considered by many to be one of the first, if not the first well-known history of science collectors.

Ernst Weil of London began to issue his antiquarian science catalogues in the 1930s; H. P. Kraus issued his Catalogue 10, Incunabula and Early Science in 1936. Henry Sotheran was another dealer to enter the market in the 1930s.

In examining sale or commemorative catalogues of scientists’ collections it is easy to view them as potential mirrors of the collectors’ mind, and in part this follows. But unless one knows the circumstances which led to collecting, these catalogues should be taken as only partial evidence. One cannot be certain that one is seeing a complete list of the collection. The widow or children may have kept parts which were not listed. In fact, for several scientists in this bibliography one finds second and third sales from a given collection taking place ten or fifteen years after his death. And if the collector himself compiled the catalogue, he may have excluded less interesting (to him) titles from the list.


Many people helped make this list less lacunar than it would otherwise be, and encouraged its compilation. I am especially grateful to the following: Toby Appel, Metuchen, N.J.; Silvio A. Bedini, Smithsonian Institution Libraries: Sylvia J. Churgin, Smithsonian Institution Libraries; Lilian Clarke, Cornell University Libraries: Douglas Lee, Grolier Club; Mary A. Rosenfeld, Smithsonian Institution Libraries: Susan Van Haften Mackler, Smithsonian Institution Libraries; Roger E. Stoddard, The Houghton Library, Harvard University; Philip J. Weimerskirch, Burndy Library: and Ronald S. Wilkinson, Library of Congress.
