The Papers of Thomas Jefferson

To support the continuing preparation of an edition of the papers of Thomas Jefferson.

This project is preparing the authoritative book edition of the papers of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826). No more than 20 percent of his documentary legacy had been published previous to the inception of the Princeton edition. Thirty-three volumes have appeared under the imprint of the Princeton University Press, 28 in the chronological series and 5 in the topical series. During the proposed grant period we will work on the four remaining pre-presidential volumes: final production work on Vol. 29 (1 March 1796-31 Dec. 1797); completion and submission of Vol. 30 (1 Jan. 1797-31 Jan 1799); completion and submission of Vol. 31 (1 Feb. 1799-31 May 1800); substantial editorial work on Vol. 32 (1 June 1800-3 March 1801); commencement of editing on Vol. 33 (the first presidential volume). The crucial groundwork for Jefferson's presidency will be laid during the proposed grant period.
