      • Samuel Gardner Drake (1798–1875) was an American antiquarian, author and historian. In 1828 he established an antiquarian bookstore in Boston—the first of its kind in the United States—and devoted himself to the study of early United States history. He continued to do business as a bookseller and publisher during his life, and the most noted writers of his day availed themselves of the store of information that he had collected. He also founded the Prince Society for Mutual Publication, because he “had not been made a member of the Massachusetts Historical Society, and he resented it.”
    • Handwritten – John Russell Smith
      • John Russell Smith (1810–1894) was an English bookseller and bibliographer. He is best remembered for his “Library of Old Authors” series of reprints, mainly of sixteenth and seventeenth century literature, printed by the Chiswick Press and issued between 1856 and 1875.
