Collection

 

The Remnant Trust has an actively growing collection of manuscripts, 1st and early edition works dealing with the topics of individual Liberty and human Dignity, some dating as early as 2500 B.C.

 

In its infancy, The Remnant Trust thought the topics of Liberty and Dignity would be a narrow area of focus, however, we soon learned it was much broader and encompassed many more works then we ever thought possible.

 

The Remnant Trust expanded the collection within the topics of Liberty and Dignity and found several different genres that fit with both topics. We have welcomed works with the topics of Liberty and Dignity from the genres of Philosophy, Economics, Politics, Mathematics and Science, and Religion.  The Collection is comprised of over 1,300 manuscripts, books, pamphlets, and related documents. It includes the writings of such seminal thinkers as Isaac Newton, Thomas Aquinas, Galileo, Thomas Paine, Fredrick Douglass, Andrew Carnegie, John Locke, St. Augustine, Euclid, Mary Wollstonecraft, Chaucer and many, many more. Furthermore, documents such as The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of The United States of America, Magna Carta, and The Federalist Papers are also included in the collection.
