Anniversary dinner at Monticello, April 14, 1974, in memory of Thomas Jefferson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Jefferson had Souche make a wooden copy of the bronze askos from the ruins of the Maison Carrée at Nîsmes as a gift for Charles Louis Clèrisseau, who drafted the plans and arranged for the construction of the model for the new capitol in Richmond without compensation. Jefferson ultimately had Thomas Claxton make a silver askos as well, but gave a silver urn modeled on forms dug from Herculaneum and Pompeii to Clèrisseau, probably because he concluded that the askos seemed originally "to have been employed for the toilet alone."
