This catalogue was created to accompany an exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art commemorating the 200th anniversary of the framing of the United States constitution. The goal was to provide a snapshot--through artifacts--of the culture and sophistication that surrounded those Americans who codified the ideals of a national vision. With more than 25 color plates and 50+ supporting illustrations, the catalogue illustrates a variety of objects. A checklist of the 254 objects in the exhibition completes the book.
