Madison appreciated the significance of the Constitutional Convention and took great care to compile an accurate report of its proceedings. The journal he compiled between May 14 and September 17, 1787, often referred to as "The Madison Papers" or "Madison's Notes" remains the most complete record of the proceedings. This volume is based on the edition of 1840, which was published by the United States government from Madison's original manuscripts. The volume also includes the text of another manuscript that traces the history of American constitutionalism from 1754 to 1787. Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Distributed by William S.
