The Rosenbach

The Rosenbach

Welcome to the Rosenbach, where great works of literature, history, fine and decorative art come together in intriguing and unexpected ways. The museum was founded in 1954 by a gift of the Rosenbach brothers, world renowned dealers in rare books, manuscripts and fine art. The core collection features treasures that the brothers’ were unable to part with. These include the only surviving copy of Benjamin Franklin’s first Poor Richard almanac, letters written by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson & Abraham Lincoln, and the manuscript of James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses. The collection has since grown to include Bram Stoker’s notes for Dracula and the papers of poet Marianne Moore. The museum features rotating exhibitions, a rich variety of public programs, literature reading groups, and unique Hands on Tours where visitors can get up close and personal with the collection.
