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 lists the 1595 edition published in Heidelbergae. This is also the edition Millicent Sowerby's included in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 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.
