CATALOGUE OF BOOKS BELONGING TO THE ESTATE OF JOSIAH QUINCY JUNR. ESQ: DECEAS’D
Daniel R. Coquillette
As M. H. Hoeflich has persuasively demonstrated, catalogues of law libraries are valuable tools in understanding “the intellectual context of American law.” See M. H. Hoeflich, “Auctions and the Distribution of Law Books in Antebellum America,” 113 Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society (Worcester, 2005), 160. This includes auction and estate catalogues, such as this one, and also library catalogues. See, for example, The Printed Catalogues of the Harvard College Library (eds. W. H. Bond, H. Amory, Boston, 1996); Thomas Jefferson’s Library: A Catalog with the Entries in His Own Order (eds. J. Gilreath, D. C. Wilson, Washington, 1989); Catalogue of Books in the Massachusetts Historical Library: An annotated edition of the 1796 library catalogue of the Massachusetts Historical Society (eds. J. D. Cushing, M. E. Cogswell, M. E. Fabiszewski, E. W. Hanson, B. M. Lawson, Boston, 1996), and The Library of William Byrd of Westover (ed. K. J. Hayes, Madison, 1997). Both Quincy and Jefferson admired Francis Bacon, and Jefferson’s library was catalogued by a scheme inspired by Bacon’s categories of knowledge in The Advancement of Learning (London, 1605). See Thomas Jefferson’s Library, supra, 2. With many thanks to my talented research assistants, and with particular thanks to Patricia Tarabelsi and Charles Riordan, Editorial Assistants to the Monan Chair.
This catalogue was clearly created soon after Quincy’s tragic death on April 26, 1775. The library was very valuable, with the assessed total being £140. The reference to books taken from the estate by “Mrs. Quincy” and “Mr. Quincy” almost certainly refer to his widow, Abigail, and his father, Colonel Josiah Quincy, who would outlive his son by nine years. Abigail survived her husband by twenty-two years. Both were buried near Quincy, his wife beside him in the tomb and his father in a separate vault at the base of the mound, in tribute to his son. See Neil L. York, “A Life Cut Short,” Quincy Papers, vol. 1, 44–46, with an illustration of the tomb in Hancock Cemetery, Quincy, id., 222.
The Catalogue is now at the Massachusetts Historical Society, P437, Reel 4, QP53. Reproduced by Courtesy of the Massachusetts Historical Society.
In addition to the transcription of the original catalogue, there is an alphabetized list painstakingly prepared by Patricia Tarabelsi, and a wonderful additional bibliographical guide prepared by Mark G. Sullivan, Legal Information Librarian and Lecturer in Law, Boston College Law Library, with the able assistance of Meredith Duval, Boston College Law School, 2009. Throughout these volumes I have acknowledged Mark Sullivan’s extraordinary contributions, and this Guide, with Meredith Duval’s assistance, is another tour de force.
