Autobiography of Thomas Jefferson by Thomas Jefferson Autobiography of Thomas Jefferson, Paperback (March 2017)

During his remarkable lifetime, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) served his country in many capacities, including as the third President of the United States. But ultimately, this gifted individual - an accomplished architect, naturalist, and linguist - wished to be remembered primarily as the writer of the Declaration of Independence.

Jefferson Bible by Thomas Jefferson Jefferson Bible, Paperback (August 2016)

It is incredible that Thomas Jefferson, America's third President, was able to find time to complete what was effectively a precis of the Gospel story without actually adding interpretation or any of his own words.

Author Biography - Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), the third president of the United States, left a vast literary legacy in the form ofjournal entries, notes, addresses, and seventy thousand letters. Jefferson remains one of the country's most extraordinary figures; as well as president he was a brilliant statesman, architect, scientist, naturalist, educator, and public servant. At a dinner for Nobel Prize recipients, John F. Kennedy said that his guests were "the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone. This volume of his works, edited by Adrienne Koch and William Peden, represents many of Jefferson's most important contributions to American political thought. It includes the Autobiography, which contains the original and revised version of the Declaration of Independence; the Anas, or Notes (1791-1809); Biographical Sketches; selections from Notes on Virginia, the Travel Journals, and Essay on Anglo-Saxon; a portion of his public papers, including his first and second inaugural addresses, and over two hundred letters. The editors have provided a general introduction and introductory notes that precede the major works.
