United States Constitution from the Printing Office of Edes & Gill

This broadside of the U.S. Constitution is a unique version of the famous document, presented as it was printed in Boston before ratification. It also includes a letter from President George Washington urging ratification (on the second side, at the bottom.) 

The broadside is printed on a historic press at the Printing Office of Edes & Gill in Boston. As was the case with the original broadsides, there might be variability in ink coverage, and you should not expect the same crisp, consistent ink coverage that we are used to with material printed on modern presses. Please note the document comes without a frame.

1776

America's beloved and distinguished historian presents, in a book of breathtaking excitement, drama, and narrative force, the stirring story of the year of our nation's birth, 1776, interweaving, on both sides of the Atlantic, the actions and decisions that led Great Britain to undertake a war against her rebellious colonial subjects and that placed America's survival in the hands of George Washington.

In this masterful book, David McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence – when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have been dashed and the noble ideals of the Declaration would have amounted to little more than words on paper.

Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, 1776 is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the King's men, the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known.
