The Utah Territorial Library was established by an act of the United States Congress in 1850 with an allocation of five thousand dollars. William C. Staines was appointed Librarian Feb. 21, 1852. This catalogue was originally complied and printed in 1852, and gives a record of just what was available to the early Mormon emigrants.
