George Wythe Collection


The George Wythe Collection, composed of 160 titles, is available in Legal Classics. Although the George Wythe Collection is much larger than 160 titles, the HeinOnline collection contains mainly law-related content.

What is the George Wythe Collection?

The George Wythe Collection was assembled in eighteenth-century Virginia by George Wythe. This collection includes Western classics on history, philosophy, science, mathematics, and law. The books directly impacted the development of Virginia law and the law of the new nation. In 2005, the Wolf Law Library of the College of William & Mary began a project to replicate this collection, focusing mainly on books relating to law. It includes both inventory titles inherited from Wythe and surviving books which belonged to Wythe.
