About the Rosenbach
The Rosenbach seeks to foster inquiry, learning and creative thought by engaging audiences in programs, exhibitions, and research inspired by our collections of nearly 400,000 rare books, manuscripts, and ﬁne and decorative art objects, including some of the best-known literary and historical objects in the world. In December 2013, the Rosenbach became afﬁliated with the Free Library of Philadelphia, bringing together two of the world’s preeminent collections of rare books, manuscripts, Americana and art. The combined holdings of the Rosenbach and the Free Library of Philadelphia inspire unique exhibitions and programs throughout the year.
OPenn includes some of the items from the Rosenbach. For more information on all of the special collections available at the Rosenbach see:
