Origin and Growth of the Library of the Massachusetts Historical Society free pdf Excerpt from Origin and Growth of the Library of the Massachusetts Historical Society: A Paper Presented at a Meeting of the Society, November the Society The first local habitation of the Society was a single room in the Manufactory House, a building owned by the Massachusetts Bank, and situated where Hamilton Place is now- and for a year it served the purposes of a library and for the meetings. This room was occupied from June 30, 1791, until the next summer, when the books and the museum were taken to new quarters, an attic chamber in the northwest corner of Faneuil Hall. The first meeting was held here on July 31, 1792, at which time the Library contained not far from 225 volumes, and perhaps 500 pamphlets. Of these, as a rough estimate, 75 volumes and many pamphlets have not been identified, and some, doubtless, have been lost. Most of the pamphlets received before July 31, 1792, were bound in 50 volumes, of which now only 40 are known to be in the Library. These volumes were probably added soon after the removal to Faneuil Hall- and before June 11, 1794, about 225 other volumes were received. Of these 25 contain about 200 pamphlets, which had been given to the Library and bound in the latter part of the year 1792, or early in 1793. Up to June 11, 1794, it is estimated that about 1,000 pamphlets had been received, of which perhaps 700 were bound in 75 volumes, as explained above. The Society continued to meet in its chamber at Faneuil Hall until June 11, 1794, a period of nearly two years, when it removed to the Tontine Crescent, Franklin Place, where, according to a deed executed on May 1, it had bought the fee of a large room in the upper story, over the archway which passed under the centre of the building. The apartment was forty feet in length and twenty-seven in breadth, and was finished at the Society's expense. At that time the Library is supposed to have had about 500 volumes and 300 pamphlets, for the most part relating to New England history, and for that period it was a very considerable collection of books. The explanation of the decrease in the number of pamphlets for the previous two years lies in the fact that during this period 75 volumes, more or less, had been bound, each volume containing about ten pamphlets. For the first time the members owned their place of meeting, which was their home for thirty-nine years, until June 5, 1833. This period appears to be the natural cycle of the Society, as it occupied the old building on the present site in Tremont Street for the same term.
