Lost Rights is the story of one of the original fourteen copies of this country's Bill of Rights. Howard traces its journey for 138 years. It was fascinating to me to read about the history, about authentication of the document, about the legality of ownership, about the amount of money people are willing to pay for such a piece of history, and about antique dealers and compromise. This was a great read.
