Historical Documents Set

The documents that inspired the American Revolution and the founding of the nation remain as relevant today as they were almost 250 years ago. From Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and other writings to Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Papers, we’ve brought together 8 writings that are essential in understanding America’s early years. Fans of history, philosophy, and politics will love poring over these important volumes. Our custom design features an early Colonial Flag overlain with text and signatures from the Declaration of Independence. All books are heirloom-quality and published by Library of America.

As seen in Vanity Fair’s Holiday Gift Guide in the January 2016 issue.
