The Papers of Thomas Jefferson

Scholarly work on volumes 34-39 of the multi-volume edition of the Thomas Jefferson papers. (36 months)

This project at Princeton University is preparing the authoritative book edition as well as a digital edition of the already-published volumes of the papers of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), scientist, primary author of the Declaration of Independence, advocate of religious freedom and freedom of the press, and the nation's third president. Less than 20 percent of his documentary legacy had been published previous to the inception of the Princeton edition. Thirty-eight volumes have appeared under the imprint of the Princeton University Press, thirty-three in the chronological series and five in the topical. During the proposed grant period, 2007-2010, we will work on six volumes of Jefferson's presidency, Volumes 34-39. We will submit three of these volumes to the Press. Together they cover 1 May 1801 through 30 April 1803, reaching the heart of the first term of Jefferson's presidency.
