The Writings of Thomas Jefferson … [edited by] Henry A. Washington


Condition: See description

FIRST EDITION of Jefferson's writings to attempt to be comprehensive, including his principal essays, papers, and correspondence. This standard edition supersedes the four-volume edition of 1829. Includes a folding facsimile of Jefferson's original four-page draft of the Declaration of Independence.

An outstanding provenance: Edwin B. Morgan, leading American financier, merchant, and philanthropist. First president of American Express, Morgan was also a founder and first president of Wells, Fargo & Company's Express. A three-term congressman (1853-59) and leader of the nascent Republican party, Morgan was one of those who rescued Charles Sumner when he was beaten on the House floor.

Nine volumes. Plates. Contemporary half brown morocco, bound for financier and congressman Edwin B. Morgan, with his name at the foot of each spine. Minor wear and touch-ups. A very good set.

Multi-volume Set
