Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library
Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as "Hume’s essays. 1st. vol. 8vo." This was one of the titles kept by Jefferson. He may have later sold it to the Library of Congress in 1815, but the volumes no longer exist to verify Wythe's prior ownership. George Wythe's Library on LibraryThing indicates "Precise edition unknown." The Brown Bibliography lists the first edition (1741) published in Edinburgh while admitting that we do not know which edition Wythe owned.
As of yet, the Wolf Law Library has been unable to procure a copy of Essays.
