The Remnant Trust is a public educational foundation that shares an actively growing collection of manuscripts, first editions, and early works dealing with topics of individual liberty and human dignity with some pieces dating as early as 2500 B.C. The Trust makes this collection available to colleges, universities, and other organizations for use by students, faculty, scholars, and the general public. Those exposed are encouraged to touch, feel, and read the originals, including the first English translations.

Mr. Bex will bring several books with him, including a 1st edition copy of the Federalist papers, a collection of 85 articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay under the pseudonym "Publius" to promote a ratification of the United States Constitution.
