Reviews

Among the Second Series of The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, this volume has the most detailed coverage of his day-to-day life. These disciplined records of personal expenditures, and of various other daily observations, furnish valuable information about prices and availability of commodities of the period and provide abundant evidence of Jefferson's devotion to a systematic way of living and of his insatiable curiosity.

Review:

"Now, at long last, Jefferson's incomparable daily records of his transactions and activities are gathered together, lucidly transcribed, and carefully annotated. The result is a resource rich in possibility for those who seek to understand the man and his world."--Journal of Southern History
