Turn the Page: Inside Governor Tryon’s Library

Record #:
The Tryons’ collection of books, which functioned as a library for the community’s upper classes, is a visit-worthy aspect for tours. Of the seven books described, three include photos, notably the reproduced likeness of Jonathan Swift’s The Works of Dr. Swift, Dean of St. Patrick’s, Dublin, Volume III” (1768). Other noteworthy aspects of the collection include books reflecting Mary Tryon’s interest in military history, unusual for that time’s upper-class women.
