The Jefferson Library

By: Department 56 ®

More than any other President, we think of Thomas Jefferson as a man of letters, filled with curiosity about a broad scope of topics, ideas, and the world. The more he read, the more he thought, wrote, and invented. Through inheriting and collecting, he accumulated over 6000 books - the largest personal collection in the United States. After the British burned the Library of Congress in the War of 1812, Jefferson offered to sell his entire collection for a greatly reduced price in the hopes of re-establishing this great collection for the use of the nation. Soon after, he began to collect again, saying, "I cannot live without books." The Jefferson Library piece pays homage to this very literary man.
