THE LIFE OF THOMAS JEFFERSON.

(London: Charles Knight and Co., 1837). 223 x 137 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 3/8"). Two volumes. First British Edition.

Pleasing contemporary calf, covers with single gilt rule border, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central lozenge surrounded by small tools, scrolling cornerpieces, red and green morocco labels. Frontispiece portrait of Jefferson by W. Holl from a print engraved by A. Desnoyes. Front pastedown with bookplate of Edward Nicholas Hurt. Leather a little freckled, spines softly sunned to a light tan, but a fine, unread copy of "the first substantial life of Jefferson and the most balanced one to appear in the nineteenth century."
