NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Oct. 4, 1817 

* Constitution of Indiana

Inside has what appears to be the entire text of the Constitution of the State of Indiana taking over 8 pages.
The front page has an interesting broadside-like graph and text concerning public expenditures in Great Britain, Ireland and the United States. Such graphics in this title are quite rare.
Also included is a resolution for the construction of a monument to be placed in Paoli, Pennsylvania, in honor of those who died in the Paoli massacre at the hands of the British.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, good condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
