JEFFERSON HIMSELF

A Professor at the University of Virginia and authority on Jefferson has compiled here a book about Jefferson from his own writings, including some material unpublished until now. The man, his opinions and beliefs appear in his own words; the editor has contributed introductions and explanatory notes. Topically arranged, Jefferson is presented as a Virginian, a young squire, a revolutionist, a war governor, a secretary of state, a philosopher, a president, etc. His tenets of liberty, personal rights, neutrality, peace are fully illustrated here. A book for reference, largely.
