Abstract:

The Leary's Book Store archives, dating from the 1840s to 1969, is divided into two series, "Records" and "Bound Volumes/Ledgers." The first series, Records, consists of boxes which are arranged chronologically and by subject matter. There are specific boxes devoted to financial statements, trial balances, and income tax material. Other boxes contain general business correspondence, photographs of the interior and exterior of the store, information pertaining to the legal dispute with Gimbels, catalogues and school books published by Leary's, and secondary newspaper and magazine articles written about the store. The second portion of the collection consists of bound volumes pertaining to Leary's business dealings. This includes general ledgers, cash books, payroll books, accounts receivable, mail orders journals, and scrapbooks of advertisements taken out by the store. The records include a series of letters from H.L. Mencken regarding book orders (1930-1942) and issues of the "Book Worm," beginning with Volume 1, No. 1, which was a catalog for the store. Prominent correspondents include Charles N. Mann, a partner of Stuart's in Leary's, and a diary kept by Charles Davenport in a journal for the year 1849 is also included.
