Descripción Library of America, New York, 1984. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition. NEW Library of America 1st edition hardcover (orig. 1984) 1st printing, fine virtually as-new slipcase w/ excellent sharp edges & corners, new navy-blue Brillianta rayon-weave silk-finish fabric-over-boards cover w/ new edges & corners & titles & Library of America colophon handsomely gold-stamped on spine, impeccable smooth-cut text-block exterior, new Smyth-sewn binding w/ tight signatures & blue-white-checked cloth bands at spine caps & blue silk page-marker ribbon bound-in from top, new white-on-blue LOA-patterned card-stock end-papers, pristine interior printed in remarkably clear 10-point Linotron Galliard on superb Olin Nyallite pap. * 5.0" x 8.12" x 2.00", 1.02 kg, 1600 pp. With slipcase: 5.36" x 8.42" x 2.08", 1.12 kg * CONTENTS: Autobiography (1), A Summary View of the Rights of British America (103), Notes on the State of Virginia (123), Public Papers (327), Addresses, Messages & Replies (487), Miscellany (567), Letters (709); Chronology (1519), Note on the Texts (1532), Notes (1549), Index (1573) * Third President of the United States, author of the Declaration of Independence, spokesman for democracy & the republic, Thomas Jefferson had an extraordinary variety of speculative interests. These are now fully represented in the most comprehensive testimony to his greatness ever to appear in a single volume. He was exceptionally controversial in his own time & many of his ideas remain the subject of national debate. In his arguments for a system of general education, for local rather than central authority, for caution in international affairs, for religious & intellectual freedom, & for economic & social justice, Jefferson defined, at the moment of the nation's formation, the issues that still frame our political life. This volume & its broad selection of texts spanning Jefferson's long career will give the reader the opportunity to reassess one of our most influential presidents. His "First Inaugural Address" is a resounding statement of faith in a democracy of enlightened people. His "Notes on the State of Virginia" & his letters to his political allies, scientific colleagues, family members & friends are an invaluable record of the landscape, life & daily concerns of Americans in the Revolutionary & early national eras, & also at times provide fervent & witty rejoinders to European representations of the American scene. Extensively read (his library of 10,000 volumes became the foundation of the Library of Congress) & widely traveled (as American minister in Paris during the French Revolution, he reported its events w/ informed sympathy), Jefferson wrote w/ ease & spontaneity about architecture (he helped plan the nation's capital), gardening, religion, literature, botany, education (he founded the University of Virginia), the habits of his fellow citizens, &, of course, his beloved Monticello. His prose has an energy, clarity & charming off-handedness consistent w/ his conviction that style in writing should impose no barrier between the most educated & the most common reader. For those who want a renewed sense of the opportunity for human freedom that the United States represented to its founders, this is an indispensable book. * Merrill Peterson, editor of this volume, is Professor of History at the University of Virginia & author of the acclaimed "Thomas Jefferson & the New Nation: A Biography." * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
