-  Catalog of the library of Thomas Jefferson, copied at his request by Nicholas Trist. The U.S. Congress having acquired the library in 1814, Trist apparently worked from a copy of the printed 1815 Library of Congress catalog specially marked by Jefferson in order to restore, in place of its alphabetical arrangement of each subject category, the original order of entries that Jefferson preferred. Trist reported his completion of the task in a letter from Louisiana dated Oct. 18, 1823. Cf. Thomas Jefferson Papers.
-  Caption title.
-  The pages are numbered in Jefferson's hand, on rectos only. The page count disregards 2 front flyleaves of variant paper and 6 blank leaves (excluding a large stub) at end.
