Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as "Novum testamentum. Gr. 12mo. Lond. 1730. Tonson" This was one of the titles kept by Thomas Jefferson and later sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. Both the Brown Bibliography[1] and George Wythe's Library[2] on LibraryThing include the 1730 edition published in London based on Millicent Sowerby's entry in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson,[3] but, Jefferson's copy no longer exists. As yet, the Wolf Law Library has been unable to procure a copy of Kainēs Diathēkēs Hapanta.
