Of all the early US Presidents, Thomas Jefferson was the most remarkable: a polymath, linguist, inventor and architect who combined intellectual brilliance and practical ability, idealism and political dexterity. This biography from a Pulitzer Prize-winning author charts the epic sweep of his life, from the American Revolution to his death on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and examines his controversial relationship with his slave Sally Hemings. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and American-cut pages. Off-mint.
