Additional Details:
The Athenaeum was incorporated March 6th, 1810. Its character and objects are in many respects like those of the Boston Athenaeum. It was the outgrowth of the Social Library of 1760 and of the Philosophical Library of 1781, the nucleus of which was a collection of scientific books captured in the Irish Channel by Capt. Hill, the privateersman.
