Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

There is no doubt that Wythe owned this title—a copy of the 1728 edition of "Novum testamentum. Gr. 8vo. Lond." at the Library of Congress includes George Wythe's bookplate. Thomas Jefferson also listed "Novum Testamentum" in his inventory of Wythe's Library, noting that he kept the volume himself. He later sold it to the Library of Congress in 1815. Both George Wythe's Library[1] on LibraryThing and the Brown Bibliography[2] list the 1728 edition published in London based on the edition Millicent Sowerby included in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson,[3]. As yet, the Wolf Law Library has been unable to procure a copy of Kaines Diathekes Apanta.
