Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note
The William J. Campbell Bookstore, founded in 1850 in Philadelphia by John Campbell, an English bookseller, specialized in publishing local history and legal tracts. In 1874, William J. Campbell assumed direction over operations with the death of his father. In 1931, William's son John J. replaced his father and served at the helm until the store closed in 1951.

Description of Collection
This collection contains the records of the oldest family-operated bookstore in Philadelphia, including the business papers of the founder, John Campbell; the personal letters of William M. Campbell; the business correspondence of William J. Campbell, 1895-1951, and his letter books, 1903-1925; and Campbell catalogs, 1866-1951. Materials include business correspondence, clippings, financial records, legal documents, book catalogs, drawings, maps, photographs, pamphlets, advertisements, sheet music, glass negatives, notebooks, postcards, newsletters, scrapbooks, brochures, posters, and manuscripts.

Of note, are letters between Henry A. Martin, a dealer of legal/naval prints, and the William J. Campbell Bookstore. Much of the correspondence is from Martin to his nephew, John J. Campbell and William J. Campbell, the proprietor of Campbell's Bookstore, while on collecting tours in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Detroit, Cleveland, and Washington, D.C.

The collection also reflects the Campbell family's interest in Americana, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania history, and legal literature. William J. Campbell was an officer of the City History Society of Philadelphia and the collection documents that connection with correspondence, newsletters, postcards, clippings, and scrapbooks, primarily for the 1920s. Additionally, researchers will find some records of the Site and Relic Society of Germantown and the Mercantile Library of Philadelphia.

The collection also contains documents and photographs associated with Fairmount Park and Germantown. There is a great diversity of photographic materials in the collection.
