The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello
  • Author : Peter J. Hatch
  • Publisher : University of Virginia Press
  • Release Date : 1998
  • Category: Gardening
  • Pages : 222
  • ISBN Code: 9780813917467

Summary: Lavishly illustrated, Peter Hatch's The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello is not only a detailed history of Jefferson's gardens and their re-creation but a virtual encyclopedia of early American pomology. Hatch argues that fruit growing and horticulture were in fact synonymous terms in early America, influenced primarily by the importance of alcoholic beverages to the American diet. One historian has remarked how significant it was when Americans began eating their fruit instead of drinking it. The story of Jefferson's struggle to produce a useful and ornamental garden on a grand scale - so carefully documented in his letters and papers - makes for fascinating reading. His fruitery was unique in being both an Old World fruit garden and a colonial farm orchard; seedling peaches and Virginia cider apples were planted alongside French apricots, Spanish almonds, and English plums. His horticultural vision was far-reaching in scope and characteristically ahead of its time. The history of fruit growing at Monticello is a reflection of Jefferson's spirit: expansive, optimistic, epicurean, innocent, and altogether American.

Jefferson and His Time: The sage of Monticello
  • Author : Dumas Malone
  • Publisher : Unknown
  • Release Date : 1981
  • Category: Presidents
  • Pages : N.A
  • ISBN Code: N.A

Summary: A classic biography of Jefferson. Among the many contributions of this authoritative study was Malone's inclusion in each volume of a detailed timeline of Jefferson's activities and frequent travels in his life. Malone's volumes were widely praised for their lucid and graceful writing style, for their rigorous and thorough scholarship, and for their attention to Jefferson's evolving constitutional and political thought. Later, however, some reviewers faulted Malone, believing he had a tendency to adopt Jefferson's own perspective and thus to be insufficiently critical of his occasional political errors, faults, and lapses. Some said that he was biased in favor of Jefferson and against his principal adversaries Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and John Marshall. Also, during the period in which this was being written, historical studies of slavery and its influences in the United States expanded dramatically. Some academics said that Malone did not adequately treat Jefferson's life as a slaveowner and the paradoxes inherent in his views on liberty and slavery.--Adapted from Wikipedia, 11/2016.
