I bet the got them from the Smithsonian.  In fact, I bet if you contact
someone there (no idea who - you'd have to find out), you could get all
the Mercury blueprints on microfilm.  You may have to sign a waiver
stating you won't build one to fly. (I know that they stipulate this
before releasing WWII fighter prints, no idea about spacecraft)
