Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library
Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as Pausanias Gr. Lat. fol. and given by Thomas Jefferson to his grandson Thomas Jefferson Randolph. The precise edition owned by Wythe is unknown. George Wythe's Library on LibraryThing indicates this without choosing a specific edition. The Brown Bibliography lists the edition published in 1583 in Frankfurt based on the copy Jefferson sold to the Library of Congress. The Wolf Law Library followed Brown's suggestion and purchased the Frankfurt volume edited by Frideric Sylburg.
