Contains The Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina, the first instrument ever written out for the entire and perfect government of a political body. Lord Shaftesbury drafted the plan, and Locke put it in this form. Although it is impracticable in many particulars, it undoubtedly provided some suggestions of benefit to the colonists in their political and civil organization. SABIN 41726.
