Charles Evans (1850-1935) began his career as a librarian and bibliographer at the Boston Athenaeum (these autographs were collected during his last two years there) and is best known for his AMERICAN BIBLIOGRAPHY, a catalogue of American imprints from 1639 to 1800, cited as "Evans" in our cataloguing.
