This offering comprises the Folwell printing of the Journals of the Continental Congress, covering the entire sweep of the Revolution, the Articles of Confederation era, and including the adoption of the Constitution, which is printed in the Appendix to Volume XIII.
Folwell produced the first collected Journals of the Continental Congress, which had previously been printed only as monthlies, annuals and, during 1779, some weeklies, many of which are difficult to obtain. Congress engaged Folwell in 1799 to print 400 sets of the Journals. They form the foundation of any collection of significant Americana.
