Thomas Jefferson assembled a new library after selling nearly all his personal collections of books to the U.S. government in 1815. Three years after Jefferson's death, his family sold this "retirement" library to satisfy creditors. This catalogue lists the books to be sold at the auction. Joshua Cohen, a recognized, 19th-century colonial currency and early American documents collector, owned this copy.
