American Philosophical Society
Rising People: The Founding of the United States, 1765 to 1789
Whitfield J. Bell, Jr. (au); Julian P. Boyd (in). Catalogue of a joint exhibition to celebrate the Amer. Bicentennial, held in Philadelphia from April 28 through Nov. 1976, with materials from the collections of the Amer. Philosophical Soc. (APS), The Historical Society of Pennsylvania, & The Library Company of Philadelphia. The catalogue, like the exhibit itself, is addressed to Amer. citizens who wish both to know more about the formation of the Amer. nation in the years from 1765 to 1789 & to see the very books & documents in which the men of that generation recorded their thoughts, decisions, & acts. The catalogue therefore excludes bibliographical data; but it contains commentaries on the significance of individual entries. Profusely illustrated.
