tion | of the | Thirteen United States of America. | [Signed, John Hancock and all except
one of the signers.] In Congress, January 18,1777.| Ordered,| That an authenticated Copy
of the Declaration of Independency, with the Names of the Members of Congress, sub-
scribing the same, be sent to Each | of the United States, and that they be desired to have
the same put on Record.| By Order of Congress,| John Hancock, President.] Baltimore, in
Maryland: Printed by Mary Katharine Goddard.| [1777.]

Broadside. 20 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches.

The first issue of the Declaration of Independence printed with the names of the signers. Library of Congress
copy is attested in long hand by Charles Thomson, Sec'y, and John Hancock, President. Signatures of signers
do not include Thomas McKean of Delaware who was in the field with the army and signed the document only
in 1781. This session of Congress was held in Baltimore, and Mary Goddard acted as its printer. There is a copy
of the broadside in the Ms. Div. of the Library of Congress, and another in the State House, Annapolis. (Ford,
Bibliographical Notes, No. 117).

The entry above of a Maryland printed copy of the "Declaration of Independence" is the crown of the task
which the compiler set himself in attempting to record through the production of its press the development in
social and political ideals of one of the oldest of the American commonwealths.
