It is based on Jefferson's personal catalogue and the 1839 catalogue of the Library of Congress (the first to incorporate Jefferson's books). Also known as the Sowerby Catalogue, this invaluable resource with extensive annotations is the most comprehensive and detailed bibliography of the largest and most important American library of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
