Bibliography
This bibliography includes only sources that I have cited in the footnotes. Scores of libertarian tracts were examined without yielding material for this book and are therefore omitted, including works by such writers as Isaac Backus, Joel Barlow, Thomas Cooper, Joseph Fownes, John Leland, Richard Price, Joseph Priestly, John Toland, and David Williams. The abbreviation "N.Y.P.L." after a tract indicates that I used the copy in the New York Public Library after failing to locate one in the Boston-Cambridge area.
