The Constitution of the United States.

Cambridge, MA: Riverside Press, 1911. Rogers, Bruce. Octavo. (40)pp. One of 440 copies. A noble edition of one of the United States’ most revered documents, with borders on every page and a stylized eagle as the header to the Preamble, all designed by Bruce Rogers. The Constitution, at its genesis, enacted a democracy both of the people and of their respective states, grounding the success of the American Revolution in codified tenets of freedom and justice. Although the lens of history reveals the flaws in this 18th-century document—in its generalities it lost sight of equality for all people, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or class—it laid a hopeful foundation for future improvements to the Republic. Bound in blue boards with gilt stamping to the front cover. Some rubbing to covers, wear to spine, and occasional foxing to interior. Very good. Item #30476
