it was amazing

A fascinating look at Thomas Jefferson that many people probably do not know about. In all of the books I have read about Jefferson, I did not realize he was such a book collector. The stories of his book collecting were fascinating, the quotes included along the way add a great deal to the story, as well as the anecdotes about the time period. The author's note at the end shares more about the book collection and Jefferson owning slaves. A good bibliography is included showing the amount of research that went into this book!
