Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as Cornelius Nepos. 12mo. Foul. and given by Thomas Jefferson to his grandson Thomas Jefferson Randolph. The precise edition owned by Wythe is unknown. George Wythe's Library[1] on LibraryThing indicates this, adding "Duodecimo editions were published by Foulis in 1742 and 1749." The Brown Bibliography[2] lists the 1742 edition based on the copy Jefferson sold to the Library of Congress.[3] The Wolf Law Library found a copy of the 1749 Foulis edition and purchased it.
