Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library
Listed in the Jefferson Inventory of Wythe's Library as Hooker’s Ecclesiastical polity. fol. and given by Thomas Jefferson to his son-in-law, Thomas Mann Randolph. We do not have enough information to conclusively identify which edition Wythe owned. George Wythe's Library on LibraryThing indicates this without naming a specific edition. The Brown Bibliography lists the 1723 edition from London based on the copy Jefferson sold to the Library of Congress. The Wolf Law Library followed Brown's suggestion and purchased the London 1723 edition.
