    1812 Presidential Election Booklet, "Hamilton to the Federalists of the United States on the Choice of a President."(New York: Self-published, 1812), 27 pp., 8vo (5.75" x 9"), paper covers. The author of this anti-DeWitt Clinton tirade was either a Hamilton or, more likely, used the great Federalist's surname to hide behind. A pro-war supporter of James Madison, this "Hamilton" writes in small part: "A deep shade of deception is palpable in the whole course of Mr. Clinton's life...He polluted the pure fountain of public honours with 'filth and offal'...Let this monster of Clintonian birth be strangled in its infancy, before strength and vigour enable it to destroy you." Originally bound with string; however it's now loose. Light foxing and minor stains, uneven edges as made. Very good condition.
