book coverTHOMAS JEFFERSON'S GRANDDAUGHTER IN QUEEN VICTORIA'S ENGLAND: THE TRAVEL DIARY OF ELLEN WAYLES COOLIDGE, 1838-1839 co-edited by Ann Lucas Birle

Like many well-educated ladies of her era, Ellen Wayles Coolidge kept diaries, but as the granddaughter of an American president, she had rare access to London society. She makes perceptive observations on British society, American democracy, family back home, art, and conversations with leading writers and activists. Check the Catalogbullet
