Introduction to Notes of the State of Virginia by Thomas Jefferson. The wide reputation and high value that have been accorded to the Notes on Virginia for over one hundred years make any attempt to praise it at this day little less than a work of supererogation. Its frequent republication is alone testimony sufficient to prove its unusual merit. Aside from its intrinsic value, it is of interest, as Jefferson’s most serious piece of book-making, and the one on which the larger part of his philosophical reputation was based during his lifetime.

Reviews:
  • Inth
This document testifies to Thomas Jefferson's true opinions on Africans as a race of people, which was denigrating and coarse. One can compare his writing on the freedoms in the new American republic and his pride in them as a founding patriot, with what he thought of slaves and their intellectual and cultural capacities to function as free people in a free society. He offers a solution to issues around emancipation that would involve deporting all people of African descent, and replacing them by attracting people of the white race to leave their countries and come to America. Jefferson also writes that he fears for the effects that the brutality of the practice of slavery will have on the future of America, as well as God's wrath.

A fantastic peek into the amazing mind of Thomas Jefferson .This book is stunning !! offering information like an almanac and so very very much more Jefferson was to socity government and cultural morals as Einstine was to physics .His inquisitive Nature is on full display here and any question about his position on slavery is addressed clearly .His 10,000 book collection was the start of the library of congress. So much information and so very interesting enjoy .
  • GODMAX
It is always interesting to read what our forefathers wrote at the time they lived.
  • Freaky Hook
There wasn't anything really special about this book. In fact, most of the interesting and telling information occurs in the last few chapters. But, if you're looking for a historical book that lists every nook and cranny almost of Virginia, then this is it.
  • Alsalar
I was disappointed that this "complete illustrated edition" has no images, drawings, or maps of any kind. Perhaps I misinterpreted the word "illustrated". There are some rectangular data tables... Regardless, I returned the book in favor of a different edition.
  • Levion
This is not the quality publication I expected. This edition is soft back with too many typographical errors. I would not purchase this book again.
  • Sudert
Very honest & surprisingly not very "pc!" You'd be surprised what the opinion was back then. Eye opener. This is in all schools & universities. Worth having or to re-read again.
excellent, thank you
