Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (by Frank Shuffelton)
Trist catalogue
Trist catalog
Makes available for the first time TJ's own ordering of the collection he sold to the U.S. government in 1815. The printed catalogue of 1815, prepared by the Librarian of Congress, George Watterston, preserved TJ's organization in forty-four chapters but within the chapters substituted an alphabetical order by author for TJ's order "sometimes analytical, sometimes chronological, & sometimes a combination of both." TJ's original manuscript catalogue has disappeared, but this reprints an 1823 restoration of that catalogue prepared for TJ by his private secretary, Nicholas Trist. This volume is a valuable addition to Sowerby's bibliography which tried, but failed, to reconstruct TJ's original ordering. -- Frank Shuffelton
-
In 1823 Nicholas Trist, at Jefferson's request, rewrote the catalog to the book collection that had been sold to reestablish the Library of Congress. This restored arrangement reflected Jefferson's intellectual classification of the works as well as their physical placement on the shelves at Monticello. In order that users may compare Jefferson's arrangement with that of the printed catalog authorized by Congress after it acquired the collection in 1815, this 1988 edition includes a reproduction of pages from two chapters (29 and 30) of 1815 printed catalog.-- Marilyn K. Parr (Library of Conress, A Selected List of References)
