Declaration of Independence by Peter Force (1833) From W.J. Stone's Copper Plate

This is one of the few surviving examples of Peter Force’s 1833 printing of the Declaration of Independence, authorized by Congress and printed from the original surviving copperplate used by W. J. Stone in 1823. Force issued his impressions on fine rice paper with a color tone quite similar to the original parchment. The scarcity and desirability of this document is magnified given estimates of their being fewer than 500 impressions made by Force with far fewer copies surviving today. No other American document is held in such high esteem as is the Declaration of Independence. Adopted on July 4, 1776, the independence of the thirteen American colonies from British rule was declared and a new nation, the United States of America begun. Besides its’ dominance in American history, the Declaration of Independence has been the inspiration of many other similar documents in other countries throughout the world during the 17th and 18th Centuries. This renowned 1848 pressing of this timeless document is simply outstanding. (26 X 29). Comes with a certificate that unconditionally guarantees the authenticity of this item.
