Not a commonly found print. I believe this is from "Historia de los Estados-Unidos" reengraved from a copper engraving. Engraved by J. W. Allen, lower right, and inscribed "ornament by A. H. Wray engraved by E. MC Cabe" on the lower left. Under the sigs it is inscribed "Department of state 19th, April 1819, I certify that this is a correct copy of the original Declaration of Independence, deposited at this department, and that I have compared all the signatures with those of the original and have found them EXACT imitations John Quincy Adams". This has beautiful vignettes all around its border and top. Was originally folded and our example has a separation of the fold somewhat on the top right fold. Overall toning. A pretty tough find. In a plain thin wood frame that shows some wear. Hard backing in the frame and the backing paper should be replaced as it is quite torn. 14. x 10.5 inches approximately.
