Monticello Apr. 11. 19.
In the moment of my setting out on a journey I recieve mr Dufief’s catalogue for 1819. for which I presume I have to thank you. having had time to run over the first pages only I mark in pa. 13. a copy of Scapula’s Lexicon printed at Coll. Allobr. 1616. called 8vo but I presume it is small 4to as I believe there has never been an edition so small as 8vo printed. be pleased to send me this copy. if well wrapped up in paper it may come by mail. I should be glad to know also the price of the Lexicon Aristophanicum. Gr. Angl. Sanxay. Oxon 1810. or 1811. as also of the Xenophon Schneider’s. Gr. Lat. 12. v. 12mo it is a pity the prices of the books had not been printed. we are afraid to call for a book on seeing it’s title only, as books as well as other things have limits to their value beyond which we would not go. I salute you with respect
