  • The first printed issue of the Declaration of Independence.--Evans 15155.
  • "Signed by order and in behalf of the Congress, John Hancock, President. Attest. Charles Thomson, Secretary."
  • Goff notes a difference in the placement of the imprint in two states of the broadside. In the earlier state the "P" of Philadephia is under the comma after Thomson's name, in the later state the "P" is under the "n" in Thomson's name.
  • Goff notes also a proof copy (imperfect), held by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, exhibiting differences in punctuation and in the insertion in line 13 of the word ?a? before the word ?new.? Cf. Goff, F.R. The John Dunlap broadside: the first printing of the Declaration of Independence, 1976.
