The Athenaeum has an incredible collection, including many rare items which are available to read by appointment. I had the pleasure of reading some accounting of George Washington's expenditures during his time as general of the Continental Army, written in his own hand.
The collection dates back to pre-revolutionary times, and is quite an excellent place to visit for any book buff.
