The correspondence between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson spanned half a century and embraces government, philosophy, religion, quotidian, and family griefs and joys. It begins in 1777, ceases in 1801 after Jefferson's defeat of Adams for the presidency, resumes in 1812, and continues until the death of both in 1826.
Lester J. Cappon's edition, first published in 1959 in two volumes, provides the complete correspondence between Abigail Adams and Jefferson. This reissue in a one-volume unabridged edition brings to a broader audience on of the monuments of American scholarship.
