"Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, was - as Nicholas Delbanco writes - "world-famous in his lifetime, " yet now, "he has been almost wholly forgotten." Like Delbanco himself, Sally Ormsby Thompson Robinson - the narrator of this novel and the Count's fictional, last-surviving relative - is "haunted" by one of history's most fascinating and remarkable figures, a man whom Franklin Delano Roosevelt linked with Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin as one of the "three greatest intellects America ever brought forth." Based on countless historical documents, including letters and essays by Thompson himself, The Count of Concord brings to life the remarkable career of Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford."--BOOK JACKET.
