To clarify my earlier post: I am specifically looking at the libraries of Founding-Era lawyers and judges (or, better yet, true "Framers" who participated in the 1785-1791 debates) for evidence of their thoughts or readings on search-and-seizure law. I am particularly interested in two titles: Hargrave's "Complete collection of State Trials" (4th ed. 1776-81) and a pamphlet that was printed in several editions in the 1760s sometimes entitled "A Letter Concerning Libels . . ." by "Father of Candor." If either of these works were in the possession of any of the Founding Luminaries, i am interested in knowing this. i have been going around to rare book libraries trying to determine the provenance of these books in their collections and cross-indexing this information with records of the Constitution's debates. Can anyone help me out with suggestions?

Have you looked in the Libraries of Early America that are cataloged in LT? While this isn't a full list (yet), it's a pretty decent sample.

Thanks. I checked it out and came up with some good ideas. By the way I may be in Boston tomorrow (Sept. 25) and might stop at MHS to look up a book.
