    Description

    Rare Pair of Free Soil Van Buren and Adams Campaign Prints 10" x 14" hand-colored small folio lithograph published by Nathaniel Currier in 1848, titled "Martin Van Buren, Free Soil Candidate For Twelfth President of the United States. From a daguerreotype by Plumbe." Sold together with the matching Currier print for his runningmate, titled "Charles F. Adams, Free Soil Candidate For Vice President of the United States. From a daguerreotype by Plumbe." The Free Soil Party was a successor to the Liberty Party and a precursor to the Republican Party, advocating the abolition of slavery. They took enough votes away from Cass in New York State to throw the 1848 election to slave-holder Zachary Taylor. Colors are vibrant on both prints. The Van Buren has even toning and some light dampstaining mainly to the lower third, not affecting the portrait. The Adams has a stain along the left margin and some discoloration at the very bottom. Overall condition is very good.
