"This catalogue accompanies the exhibit entitled A Rising People, with which the American Philosophical Society, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the Library Company of Philadelphia are celebrating the American Bicentennial. The catalogue, like the show itself, is addressed to American citizens who wish to both know more about the formation of the American nation in the years from 1765 to 1789 and to see the very books and documents in which the men of that generation recorded their thoughts, decisions, and acts. The catalogue therefore excludes bibliographical data; but it contains commentaries on the significance of individual entries."-- Preface
