There are a number of books about Monroe that use words, both his own and those of his biographers, to help us understand him and his place in the history of the American nation. There are also two fine museums dedicated to his memory that further this understanding by the display of his personal belongings. This book attempts to expand on this understanding by presenting a visual display of his life and world. It uses portraits of Monroe, his family, and associates; images of places and events made by artists of the time; interpretive views by later artists, and present-day photographs.
