I am enclosing a signed copy of the order card [item not included], as you requested, but I'm afraid that as a mere working scholar, I don't have any publicity photos handy to autograph". Jack N.

His book Original Meanings: Politics and Ideas in the Making of the Constitution won the 1997 Pulitzer Prize in History. In an interview about his work, Rakove explained, "The best way to maintain the fidelity of the Constitution is to reconstruct what its language originally meant to its adopters." His newest book Revolutionaries: A New History of the Invention of America was published in 2010. Light surface creases. Corners slightly worn. Fine condition.
