We measure the dependence of (B) over bar (0)-> D(*+)e(-)(B) over bar (e) on the decay angles and momentum transfer. The data sample consists of similar to 86x10(6) B (B) over bar -pairs accumulated on the Upsilon(4S) resonance by the BABAR detector at the asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider PEP-II. We specify the three form factors by two ratios R-1 and R-2, and by a single parameter rho(2) characterizing the polynomial representing h(A1), the function which describes the momentum-transfer dependence of the form factor A(1). We determine R-1, R-2, and rho(2) using an unbinned maximum likelihood fit to the full decay distribution. The results are R-1=1.396 +/- 0.060 +/- 0.035 +/- 0.027, R-2=0.885 +/- 0.040 +/- 0.022 +/- 0.013, and rho(2)=1.145 +/- 0.059 +/- 0.030 +/- 0.035. The stated uncertainties are the statistical from the data, statistical from the size of the Monte Carlo sample and the systematic uncertainty, respectively. In addition, based on this measurement, we give an updated value for the CKM matrix element vertical bar V-cb vertical bar.
