Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (by Frank Shuffelton)
Best survey of this aspect of TJ's interests; portrays him as intelligent, enthusiastic amateur with a practical bent. Emphasizes TJ's efforts to answer Buffon's theory of American degeneration, and has a chapter on Federalist attacks on TJ for being a "philosophe."
