Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as "Cases in L. & Eq. or 10th. Modern. fol." and kept by Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson later sold a copy to the Library of Congress in 1815, but the volume no longer survives to verify Wythe's previous ownership.[1] Both the Brown Bibliography[2] and George Wythe's Library[3] on LibraryThing list the first edition (1736) of this title. The Wolf Law Library followed their recommendations and purchased a copy of the same edition.
