This early Library of Congress catalogue reflects the strong ancient and modern history holdings of the library. Other subjects covered are law, politics, agriculture, geography, and natural history. The Library of Congress was originally created from a collection of books purchased from Thomas Jefferson's personal library. A brief supplement of additions to that collection was published in 1820; this is the second supplement. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 31516.
