    Description

    [Martin Van Buren]: 1839 Satirical Cartoon. Medium folio lithograph [21 1/4" x 14"] published by Childs of New York in 1839, titled "Animal Magnetism." It shows Jackson hypnotizing Van Buren, trying to instill in him some of Old Hickory's glory, but the trance produces a vision of defeat. John Van Buren appears, as well as newspaper editors, Amos Kendell being one of them. A few short border tears, along with a three-way tear affecting Kendell's portrait, all repaired on verso with tape. Selections from the Collection of Tom Charles Huston.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
