LIBRARY OF CONGRESS & JEFFERSON.
PITKIN, TIMOTHY. Autograph Letter Signed, 1 p, 4to (conjoined address leaf), Washington D.C., February 28, 1815, minor creased, very good condition.
Pitkin writes to a New Haven book dealer to inform him that "Mr Jefferson's Library has been purchased, the Committee, at present, do not intend to purchase any more Books." Jefferson library was acquired as the core of the new Library of Congress (here "Congressional Library") after much of the original collection was destroyed in the War of 1812.
