SMITH, George, engraver. Declaration of Independence. In Congress July 4th, 1776. Boston: Charles Root, [ca 1848].

Approx. 12 1/2 by 9 7/8 in. engraving. (Near excellent condition. Slight crease in upper left). Although undated, this edition was likely printed ca 1848 because Tyler is depicted as the current President. This edition includes the Capitol, substituted by Z. Taylor in 1850. It appears that the LOC only has the later edition showing Taylor. (See https://www.loc.gov/item/2004672436/)
