About my libraryAt the time of Webster's death in 1852, his library contained 1302 titles, which were auctioned to the public in 1875, nearly 23 years after his death. Duplicates bring that down to the 1276 titles found in his catalog here.
The auction catalog, contributed by the University of California and digitized in the Internet Archive.
