Originally published to commemorate the bicentennial of the United States Constitution, The Founders' Constitution is arguably the most important of all resources on the principles of the Framers of the American republic. As the editors explain, the work consists of ""extracts from the leading works of political theory, history, law, and constitutional argument on which the Framers and their contemporaries drew and which they themselves produced."" The documentary sources and inspirations reach to the early seventeenth century and extend through those Amendments to the Constitution that were adopted by 1835 -- that is, through the end of the era of Chief Justice John Marshall of the United States Supreme Court. This set includes: Volume 1: Major Themes by Ralph Lerner; Volume 2: The Preamble Through Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4; Volume 3: Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5, Through Article 2, Section 1; Volume 4: Article 2, Section 2, Through Article 7; Volume 5: Amendments I Through XII.
