This article serves as an appendix to K.E. attar, 'The Earliest Books at the University of London (1838): 185 Volumes Presented by Nathaniel Vye, Esq.", Library & Information History, 32 (2016), 100-11. It describes an additional book found to have been among the Vye donation, the second edition of Allgemeine Betrachtungen über die Triebe der Thiere by Hermann Samuel Reimarus (1762) and its place within the collection. On the basis of this book and of the sale catalogue of the books of the Hamburgy-born merchant Arnold Mello (1810), it concludes definitively the list partly postulated earlier of the University of London's first bulk book donation.
