The catalogue of the books belonging to Spinoza was drawn up by the notary Willem van den Hove on 2 March 1677; the money earned from their sale was used to pay the expenses of the funeral. In the first decades of the 20th century, based on that catalogue, the library was entirely reconstructed thanks to the location and acquisition of copies of all of the works listed in the catalogue by Baron Rosenthal, which he then donated to the Spinozahuis di Rijnsburg. The catalogue contains 159 volumes, subdivided by format: In Folio (nos.1-24), In Quarto (nos. 1-55), In Octavo (nos. 1-39), In Duodecimo (nos. 1-41).
