Probate inventory; "Inventaire des biens et meubles délaissés par feu le Seigneur Bénédict de Spinoza né à Amsterdam, décédé le 21 février 1677 à la maison du Sr. Spyck, résidant à La Haye, le tout conforme à ce qui se trouvait à la maison dudit Sr. Spyck (taken ~21 February 1677; attested to 2 March 1677). Another version of the inventory can be found here.
Reconstructed catalog; Jacob van Sluis and Tonnis Musschenga, De boeken van Spinoza. Bibliotheek der Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, 2009 (contains edition data for the replacement copies rather than Spinoza's actual copies)
Library notes
Replacement copies of many Spinoza books were purchased around the turn of the twentieth century for display in the Spinozahuis museum in Rijnsburg. The editions selected for this reconstruction were based on editions Spinoza might have owned, but the specific editions he owned are, in many cases, unknown.
