PREFACE



At the time of the Hudson-Fulton Celebration, the Free
Public Library of Jersey City contributed to its observance in
various ways.

First. There was held in the Auditorium of the Library
a public meeting with historic addresses and patriotic music.

Second. An historical pamphlet was published for free
distribution entitled "From Sail to Steam, " giving the con-
nection of New Jersey and its citizens with the development
of steam navigation.

Third. A list of books appropriate to the occasion was
compiled and printed.

Fourth. A loan exhibition of articles valuable for their
age, rarity, historical associations, and intrinsic value, was
held in the Museum belonging to the Library. This collec-
tion, which consisted to a great extent of heirlooms belonging
to Jersey City families, proved to be of so much interest that
it was decided that a permanent record of the exhibits should
be made and the Librarian has accordingly catalogued them.
The work has been a pleasure and it is hoped will give satis-
faction to the friends who so kindly loaned these most inter-
esting relics, and to whom cordial thanks are due.

In addition to the articles listed in this catalogue the
Library has long been the owner of a large number of manu-
scripts, maps and other articles of historic value, which to-
gether with a fine collection of natural curiosities will be
catalogued as soon as opportunity will allow.
