Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as "# 1. Cato, Varro, Columella et Palladius de re rustica, p 8vo." This was one of the titles kept by Thomas Jefferson and later sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. The Brown Bibliography[1] lists the 1595 edition published in Heidelbergae. This is also the edition Millicent Sowerby's included in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson,[2] but, Jefferson's copy no longer exists. As yet, the Wolf Law Library has been unable to procure a copy of Rei Rusticae Auctores Latini Veteres.
