NOTES OF DEBATES IN THE FEDERAL CONVENTION OF 1787, With an Introduction by Adrienne Koch

Athens, Ohio: Ohio University Press, 1966. Hardcover. First edition thus. In this indispensable primary document, Madison not only provides detailed insights into one of the great events of American history, but clearly sets forth his own position on such issues as the balance of powers, the separation of functions, and the general role of the federal government. More than in the Federalist, which shows the carefully formalized conclusions of his political thought, we see in the Debates his philosophy in action, evolving in daily tension with the viewpoints of the other delegates. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt and red titles. An especially crisp copy. Some very light browning and wear along the extremities of the dust jacket. Better than very good. Near fine / Very good. Item #70537

Price: $75.00
