About this item

This version of the Declaration of Independence was circulated by Hugh Gaine, who had established his newspaper, The New York Mercury, in 1752. Gaines revolutionary zeal did not survive the war, however, and after the British army occupied New York later in 1776, the Mercury became a staunch Loyalist journal. Printed on archival paper, mounted on a 1''-deep wook block. 11 x 17 x 1 inches
