MS (MHi); in an unidentified hand, signed by J. Duryee and Edmund Seabury; at foot of first page: “la suite de l’autre part” (“continues on the other side”); repeated sum at head of second page editorially omitted; endorsed by TJ at head of text: “1816. May”; notation by TJ at foot of text: “

5⅓ = 1.D.
fr.  c
24.93 = 1.£ sterl.
” Also enclosed in TJ to David Gelston, 19 Sept., and Gelston to TJ, 26 Sept. 1816.

TJ received two other versions of this book list, which vary slightly in sequence and contain fewer details: (1) a packing list (MS in MHi; in an unidentified hand; at head of text: “Memoires des livres Contenus dans cette Caisse” [“Records of the books contained in this crate”] and, in TJ’s hand: “1816. May 30.”; a small check mark, probably by TJ, appears to the left of each book title; endorsed by TJ: “1816. May 30.”). (2) a receipt (MS in DLC: TJ Papers, 207:36954–5; in an unidentified hand, signed “de Bure freres”; at head of text: “Memoire des livres remis en une Caisse cordée et emballée en toile grasse et maigre, marquée, Libri. I. M. T. J. adressée a Mrs Hottinguer et Cie Negociants au Havre” [“Record of books sent in a crate tied with rope, wrapped in a thin oilcloth, and labeled Libri. I. M. T. J. addressed to Messrs. Hottinguer & Co., merchants at Le Havre”] and “1816 Mai–30”; at foot of text: “Reçu composé a paris ce 6 aout 1816” [“Receipt written at Paris 6 Aug. 1816”]; enclosed in David Bailie Warden to TJ, 9 Aug. 1816). Significant differences between the three lists are described in the textual notes below.

After selling his library to the United States Congress in 1815, TJ set out to rebuild his book collection, and this invoice represents a significant early step in that process. Most of the books detailed here were in TJ’s library at Monticello at the time of his death and are listed in Poor, Jefferson’s Library description begins Nathaniel P. Poor, Catalogue. President Jefferson’s Library, 1829 description ends . A bound MS in TJ’s hand (DLC: TJ Papers, ser. 7) provides a more detailed catalogue of TJ’s retirement library at Monticello. With rare exceptions the titles are the same as those listed in Poor and in the same organizational sequence. Other books that TJ kept in his library at Poplar Forest are found in Leavitt, Poplar Forest description begins Messrs. Leavitt, Catalogue of a Private Library … Also, The Remaining Portion of the Library of the Late Thomas Jefferson … offered by his grandson, Francis Eppes, of Poplar Forest, Va., 1873 description ends . The books on the invoice printed above are in most cases readily identifiable in the Editors’ index under author, editor, translator, or title. Exceptions are listed below, as are titles for which the location of TJ’s copy is known.

The following abbreviations and terms are used above to indicate the page sizes of each book: “fol.” or folio, in which a standard printing sheet is folded once to produce two leaves, or four pages; “4to” or quarto, in which a sheet is folded twice to produce four leaves, or eight pages; “8o” or octavo, in which a sheet is folded three times to produce eight leaves, or sixteen pages; and “12 mo.” or duodecimo, in which a sheet is folded four times to produce twelve leaves, or twenty-four pages. In general, the more pages a sheet makes, the smaller the book. The invoice uses the following French terms and abbreviations to describe the covers of the books: “bas.” and “baz.” for basanne (basil/bazil: vegetable-tanned, sheep- or lambskin); “brochés” (sewed; stitched); “cart.” for cartonné (boards); “dem. vel.” for demi vélin (half vellum); “pet.” for petit (small); “rel.” for relié (bound); “v. b.” for veau bleu (blue calf); “v. br.” for veau brun (brown calf); “v. ec.” for veau écaille (tortoise calf); “vel.” and “velin” for vélin (vellum); “v. f.” for veau fauve (plain calf); “v. j.” for veau jaspé (mottled calf); “v. m.” for veau marbré (marbled/mottled calf); “v. Porph.” for veau porphyre (porphyry calf); and “v. rac.” for veau racine (tree calf, in which brown calf is stained with acid to resemble the branches of a tree) (Matt T. Roberts and Don Etherington, Bookbinding and the Conservation of Books: A Dictionary of Descriptive Terminology [1982], 18–9, 28, 35, 45, 268; Edwin Hamlin Woodruff, “A List of Abbreviations Used in Book Catalogues,” Library Journal 12 [1887]: 187–92; OED description begins James A.
