Content Description

This collection contains a letter from Dufief about discounts for his 4th edition of "Nature Displayed in Her Mode of Teaching Language to Man" to the bookselling firm Beers & Howe in New Haven, Connecticut. This letter was written to find subscriptions for a new printing, and a fourth edition was published in 1820. The idea of "Nature Displayed" came from consulting with Jefferson.
