Abstract:

In 1795 Thomas Jefferson sold a number of law books, including Worral's catalogue, Sir Edward Coke's treatise on Littleton, and reports compiled by Raymond, Salkeld, and Peere Williams, to his friend Archibald Stuart, an uncharacteristic transaction for a man who devoted a great deal of time and money to his books and who also took many prospective law students under his tutelage. The mystery was solved when many of the books sold to Stuart were returned to Monticello in 1991-92 and it was evident that these books were large format books which Jefferson, after breaking his wrist in 1786, had trouble handling. He had downsized by purchasing a more portable collection of similar titles for his son-in-law John Wayles Eppes (which was eventually added to Jefferson's own library) and made a profit in the exchange.
