The Library of William Byrd of Westover
by Kevin J. Hayes (au).
Prof. Kevin J. Hayes has accomplished the prodigious feat of reconstructing the Byrd library. Each of his entries provides full bibliographic information. The Library of William Byrd of Westover also includes a lengthy Introduction that places Byrd's library within its intellectual and cultural milieu and that constitutes a veritable intellectual biography of Byrd, discussing how his bookish interests evolved, how he acquired and used his books, and how Byrd's library compares to other contemporary American libraries such those formed by Cotton Mather, Thomas Prince, and James Logan. (Madison, WI: Madison House, Published in cooperation with The Library Company of Philadelphia, 1997.)
