Abstract:
Possibly the only survivor of Edward Moseley's vast private library, a lone volume entitled \"Treatise of Husbandry and Gardening\" is housed in the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina Library. Edward Moseley's original collection contained seventy-four books, the majority in Greek or Latin, all of a type that appealed to those of a higher education. The solitary book of this early book collector came to the North Carolina Collection through the Stephen B. Weeks Collection of Caroliniana purchased in 1918 by a special appropriation of the Board of Trustees of the University.
