Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as Ca. Temp. Talbot. fol. and given by Thomas Jefferson to Dabney Carr. The precise edition owned by Wythe is unknown. Folio editions were published in 1741, 1742, and 1753.[1] George Wythe's Library[2] on LibraryThing concurs with these findings and does not list a specific edition. The Brown Bibliography[3] lists the 1753 edition in part based on the existence of that edition in Jefferson's library.[4]
