"Magnificent"--New York Times Book Review

"One of the great biographies of the 20th century."--New Republic

"All students of Jefferson are in [Malone's] debt."--Christian Science Monitor

"Malone has proved himself to be Jefferson's finest biographer."--Journal of American
History

The Sage of Monticello is the sixth and final volume of Dumas Malone's epic masterwork,
Jefferson and His Time, a biography begun in 1943 and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in
history in 1975. More wide ranging than the preceding volumes, The Sage of Monticello
recounts the accomplishments, friendships, and family difficulties of Jefferson's last seventeen
years, including his retirement from Washington and the presidency, his correspondence with
John Adams and James Madison, his mounting personal tribulations, and his major role in the
founding of the Library of Congress and the University of Virginia, where he proved himself to be
an extraordinary educator and architect as well as a statesman. This is a fitting final chapter in
the life of one of America's greatest men.
