Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as "Digges’s Stratioticos. 8vo." This was one of the titles kept by Thomas Jefferson and later sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. Both George Wythe's Library[1] on LibraryThing and the Brown Bibliography[2] list the 1590 edition published in London. This is also the edition Millicent Sowerby's included in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson,[3] but, Jefferson's copy no longer exists. As yet, the Wolf Lab Library has been unable to obtain a copy of Arithmetical Warlike Treatise Named Stratioticos.
