About this Book
The manuscript account of the arguments in the case of Bolling v. Bolling, chiefly in the hand of Thomas Jefferson, has been published for the first time in this book. The manuscript, which is now in the collection of the Henry E. Huntington Library, contains the most complete known account of arguments submitted to an American colonial court. The book's introduction to the court case places it into its proper context.
"This book is a wonderful work of original scholarship that I believe will shape the way we think about colonial jurisprudence. "—The Honorable Robert H. Henry, 10th Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals
