Thomas Jefferson Travels. Selected Writings, 1784-1789. Publisher: National Geographic (November 21, 2006).

Acclaimed travel and adventure expert Anthony Brandt illuminates Jefferson’s inspiring voice, restless imagination and penetrating intelligence, drawing on his voluminous travel diaries and personal correspondence to reveal the man himself and the world in which he played such a vital role. Powerfully written in Jefferson’s own words, the book traces his journeys throughout Europe during his five-year residency in Paris, where he replaced Benjamin Franklin as U.S. Minister to France. His insightful, sophisticated impressions give readers a new perspective on European life in the 18th century. Jefferson’s eloquent observations of his tours through southern France, northern Italy, Germany and Holland shed light on those places in history and deepen our understanding of one of the most progressive, cosmopolitan men of his age. He knew most of the leading lights of the liberal French aristocracy, which gave him a marvelous perch from which to watch the French Revolution begin. He conferred with the Marquis de Lafayette on the French Declaration of the Rights of Man. The letters trace how Jefferson’s friendships with Adams and Abigail Adams developed; they reveal all that we really know of his love affair with the artist Maria Cosway; they show his interest in architecture developing and maturing, and they demonstrate his extraordinary skill in diplomacy. Brandt also addresses the question of whether Jefferson’s possible sexual relationship with Sally Hemings began in Paris. “This is a man whose mind grew wings,” Brandt writes, presenting Jefferson as a man no longer possible to idolize, but impossible not to like.

Conjulhala
Author of (main writer of) The Declaration of Independence.
Why would I not want to review this man's book? He was an
architect, a farmer, a gentleman, a lawyer, A Virginian! ....
There was not much that he set his mind to that he didn't
accomplish.
He was born to wealthy parents. He was a slave owner AND
set his slaves free before he died. Many people have heard that
he had children with Sally Hemming, born one of his slaves.
A lot fewer know that he loved her.

Not a review, just a correction on Douglass Roth comment.
Jefferson did not free his slaves before he died. And that was a tragedy to his slaves, who thought that they would be eventually be free during his lifetime. The were sold to pay off Jefferson's debts. Families broken up, really sad. I do not know if he thought about freeing them, maybe he did.
In that respect I have more admiration for Washington because he really felt that slavery should be abolished and he did free his slaves before he died. He led by example. His slaves were freed a year later after his death before Mrs. Washington died.

As someone who has been reading about Thomas Jefferson for much of my life, and who has read many volumes of his correspondence, I find this selection of letters particularly impressive and illuminating. Anthony Brandt has chosen letters from Jefferson that let us see this man in all his complexity, showing us the statesman, the father, the friend, and the ever curious and discriminating traveler. But Brandt's judicious selection of letters to Jefferson from his large and varied circle make the portrait of this man and his time even more compelling. I am certain that this book will be indispensable for anyone who wishes to learn more about the endlessly fascinating Thomas Jefferson.
