Description:
John C. Fremont: Outstanding 1856 Cartoon. Although unmarked, we believe "The Balls Are Rolling - Clear the Track" was published by Currier & Ives. It is a variety we have never seen before and shows James Buchanan being crushed by the Cincinnati platform and large balls representing Republican-leaning states. Fillmore, grasping the Fugitive Slave Act, seems destined for the same fate as Buchanan. A train heading for California appears in the background (foreshadowing the transcontinental railroad) while the sacking and burning of Lawrence, Kansas is shown in the foreground. It measures 16" x 12", has numerous tears and has been professionally backed with rice paper.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
