Largely eclipsed after his death in 1804 because of the sweeping triumph of his great adversary, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton's reputation was reinstated after the Civil War when a new interest was born for the true past of the United States and their founding figures. This massive edition of his works presents for one of the first times his writings and correspondence, revealing the profoundness of his role in our history not only as an actor, but also and perhaps mostly as a thinker.
Twelve Volumes featuring an illustrated frontis. Volume 1 features a portrait of Mrs. Alexander Hamilton from a painting by Inman, as well as a preface to the Second Edition. Volume 10 includes a general index to Vols 1-10, with a list of omitted letters. Vol 12 includes an index to The Federalist, the edition published in Washington in 1831 by Philip R. Fendall.
