Three Generations of Book Collectors: The Evan Turner Gift

1 31 October 2012

Consisting primarily of books acquired over a forty year period, beginning in the 1930s by Albert Morton Turner, this rare book collection reflects the Turner family's personal interest in classical and Renaissance authors, fine printing and the book arts, book provenance, and, in particular, English literature. In 2006 the Turner Collection was donated to the Athenaeum of Philadelphia by Evan H. Turner, former Director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
