farmer’s guide 8vo
course of Experimental agriculture. 3. v. 8vo
travels. 2. v. 8vo

PoC (DLC: TJ Papers, 189:33594–5); entirely in TJ’s hand; undated.

Nicholas had evidently requested this book list from TJ to guide purchases for the Library of Congress. Few had been acquired by 1815, when TJ sold most of the titles named above to the nation (The 1812 Catalogue of the Library of Congress: A Facsimile [1982], 81; Sowerby). Books not acquired from TJ include: Richard Bradley, The Gentleman and Farmer’s Guide for the Increase and Improvement of Cattle (London, 1729); Arthur Young, A Course of Experimental Agriculture, 2 vols. (London, 1770); Antoine Alexis Cadet-de-Vaux, Instruction sur l’art de faire le vin (Paris, 1800); François Rozier, Cours complet d’agriculture, théorique, pratique, économique, et de médecine rurale et vétérinaire . . . ou dictionnaire universel d’agriculture, 12 vols. (Paris, 1781–1805); and Julius Philipp Benjamin von Rohr, Observations sur la culture du coton (Paris, 1807).

In 1802 TJ ordered but apparently never received a copy of the 1781 Leipzig edition of the geoponica, a late-antique compendium largely based on the works of Cassianus Bassus (TJ to Nicolas G. Dufief, 23 Mar. 1802 [DLC]; Sowerby, description begins E. Millicent Sowerby, comp., Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1952–59, 5 vols. description ends no. 690; TJ to Samuel Harrison Smith, 29 Oct. 1814). de la brosse de la culture de l’olivier may conflate M. de La Brousse, Traité de la Culture du Figuier, suivi d’observations & d’expériences sur la meilleure maniere de cultiver (Amsterdam, 1774; Sowerby, description begins E. Millicent Sowerby, comp., Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1952–59, 5 vols. description ends no. 813), and the anonymously issued Mémoire sur la culture d’olivier et la maniere d’extraire l’huile des olives (Marseille, 1783).
