> I was wondering if someone can tell me how many books Thomas Jefferson donated to the > National Library after the British burned it down. All I know is that Jefferson > donated allof his books from his personal library. The Library of Congress has a special online exhibit on Jefferson's donated collection, and it has the exact number of books donated.
