Seller's Notes

The books being offered are antique books which should be handled with extreme care.

THE LONG ISLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY The Long Island Historical Society was founded in 1863. At that time, the city of Brooklyn was the commercial and cultural center of Long Island and it actively sought out private collections of early Americana.

In 1993, new leadership changed the name to The Brooklyn Historical Society as a museum and education center. The directors decided to divest all of the book collections that had been donated over its 150 years and retain only Brooklyn-related materials.

We have purchased many of these scarce books and will be offering them on
