E. Huntington Declaration of Independence circa 1822
For sale as is, as pictured,
For sale is this 1822 Declaration
of Independence Broadsides
engraved and printed by
Eleazar Huntington.
Although in researching this item I
found different places stating
1820-1825 on the printing date I
was told by the experts at
Bonhams & Butterfields that this
was printed in 1822.
I found this item in a box of books
I purchased at an estate sale and
have had it verified by
professionals. The book i Found it
in was called "Lives of The
Signers of the Declaration of
Independence with a sketch of
the Life of Washington
by Rev. Charles A. Goodrich 1848
My first impression was that it
may have come with the book
because it is on paper but on
further research i found it was
much older. Its size is 23" X 19"
this was the first engraving of the
Declaration to include the
facsimile of the signatures.To see
more detailed pictures please
