About

The Rosenbach became affiliated with the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation in 2013, creating the Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia. This effort brought together two of the world’s preeminent collections of rare books, artifacts, and manuscripts, including Bram Stoker’s notes for Dracula with Edgar Allan Poe’s The Murders in the Rue Morgue, and thus creating one of the greatest collections of rare books, manuscripts, Americana, and artifacts anywhere in the world. This affiliation also created a framework for endless new possibilities of sharing these collections with the public.

The Rosenbach is so named after Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach and his brother Philip, whose personal collections form the heart of the collection today. Both an exhibiting museum and library, the Rosenbach’s mission is to inspire curiosity, inquiry and creativity through exhibitions, programs, and research based on its remarkable collections.
