Description
 
The 55 men who came together in Phila, PA, to construct the Fed. Constitution during the summer of 1787 brought an impressive array of learning & experience to their task. Down the street from Independence Hall, the Library Co. of Phila. (LCP), already about a half-century old, contained an impressive collection of books. Except perhaps for the college libraries of Harvard & Yale, this growing & vital institution was almost certainly the largest library in English-speaking America. Around 5,000 titles were listed in its 1789 published “Catalogue.” To commemorate the Bicentennial of the Constitution, the LCP presented an exhibition of the books that are known to have been influential in framing the minds of the Framers, & it commissioned the writing of this document.
