Thomas Jefferson : a comprehensive, annotated bibliography (by Frank Shuffelton)
Reprints accounts of various visitors to Monticello from 1780 to 1984. A general introduction and a brief note to each selection establish historical and cultural contexts, and the reports are themselves often informative in various ways. The early ones show some unusual glimpses of TJ at home and responding warmly (or warily in some cases) to his guests; the later visitors' accounts offer some index to his changing reputation. Most of the selections offer important facts about the original state of the house and its subsequent transformations. -- Frank Shuffelton
