MS (DLC: TJ Papers, 80:13877). TJ’s retained list, given above, contains fuller titles and descriptions, as well as catalogue numbers and prices; next to the caption he added: “Wrote to A. Donald Nov. 23. 91.” The list he actually enclosed, headed: “Books for Th: Jefferson from Lackington’s catalogue for 1792.” contained brief titles, together with catalogue numbers and prices; at the foot of the list he added: “where the particular number here mentioned, happens to be sold, if there should be another copy of the same book at nearly the same price, Mr. Lackington is desired to send it.” The list bears marks indicating which books were and were not sent (see list and textual notes). On the verso, the list is addressed, in an unidentified hand, to Messrs. Donald & Burton at their London address; when the list was returned to TJ perhaps with Donald’s letter of 15 Feb. 1792 transmitting Lackington’s bill, TJ endorsed it and added: “bot of Lackington” (MS in same, 80:13880).
1. On copy sent to Donald TJ added: “or 1841. Hume’s £2–14.—or 1842. Hume’s £3.” On bill from Lackington, the catalogue number is 1842 and TJ added: “Russia leather.”
2. 2253 and the following items were not sent and are not listed on Lackington’s bill: 3957, 4421, 6763, 7494, 11334, 11383, 11392, 11532, 11840, 12416, 12950, 14146, 14152, 16177, 17818, 18344.
3. 9137 was replaced by no. 7000 on Lackington’s bill and the price changed to 7–3.
4. This lined out entry is not on the copy sent to Donald nor on Lackington’s bill.
5. 12494 is listed on Lackington’s bill as Delectus, but TJ crossed it out and gave title as above, adding “et Delectus.”
6. 16177 is crossed out on the list sent to Donald and does not appear on Lackington’s bill, but it is included in Sowerby (no. 1592) and presumably was received at another time.
