Edwin Wolf II, 79, a specialist in rare books and bibliography who headed the Library Company of Philadelphia for 32 years before he retired in 1984, died on Wednesday of lung cancer at his home in Philadelphia, his family said. Mr. Wolf was credited with reviving the library, founded in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin and containing the country's only surviving intact Colonial collection of books, maps and related artworks.
