College of Charleston receives rare book- Charleston Post and Courier

A rare 18th century political book uncovered in the vaults of the Charleston Library Society has been turned over to the College of Charleston, marking another step toward rebuilding the 800-book Mackenzie collection.

Harlan Greene, an archivist in the Addlestone Library’s Special Collections, said finding “A Dissertation Upon Parties” by Henry St. John Bolingbroke was an unexpected surprise. The college now has about 80 books from the collection and it plans to slowly purchase copies of the rest, rebuilding the collection over time.
