Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (by Frank Shuffelton)
An essential piece of scholarship. Based on TJ's catalogue of the library he sold in 1815, this adds bibliographic description of the editions or probable editions he owned and annotates the entries, usually with comments from TJ's own writings. Volume I has a preface describing the compiler's method and covers entries on civil and natural history. Volume 2 covers moral philosophy, 3 includes politics, 4 concludes entries on philosophy with citations in mathematics, astronomy, and geography and begins the entries on the fine arts. 5 concludes the fine arts entries and adds a section on sources, etc. plus an index for the whole catalogue. -- Frank Shuffelton
