Hamilton, Alexander; James Madison; & John Jay.
The Federalist, on the new constitution, written in the year 1788.
Glazer & Co, 1826. All research into the meaning and intent of the framers of the Constitution begins with The Federalist. Published in 1788 as a refutation to those who opposed ratification of the Constitution of the United States, The Federalist is relevant today as lawmakers and Supreme Court justices dust off their old copies and consult it for its authoritative and incisive interpretations of constitutional matters such as the relationship between federal and state governments, lobbies and lobbying, the freedom of the press, nominations and confirmations, constitutional amendments, war and treaty-making powers, and the impeachment process. Although the 85 essays here were originally published anonymously, authorship was assigned beginning with the Washington, 1818 edition; also beginning with that edition, Madison's corrections of his essays are present. This is the first edition of this highly important book to be printed in Maine. The appendices include the Articles of Confederation, the U.S. Constitution and amendments 1-12, and the Pacificus/Helvidius letters that Hamilton (Pacificus) and Madison (Helvidius) exchanged in response to President George Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation."
