Description

    Grant & Colfax: A Huge 47" x 34.5" Jugate Campaign Flag Banner. For those who believe that size indeed does matter, we note that this dramatic banner is the largest known jugate political campaign flag, fully 3" wider then the familiar 1876 Hayes & Wheeler design. Although two smaller Grant & Colfax varieties were issued, this design, with names below the portraits, is unique to our experience. A vertical line of period stitching runs from top to bottom at the center, however, it is unclear whether this is as made or a later repair. There are scattered small holes and light overall soiling and aging, but on the whole the flag is in great condition for display and nicely custom framed. Pictured in Arthur Schlesinger's Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images. 1789-1896, p. 295. Believed to be the only known example, this is without question one of the premier pieces in the Frent Collection.

    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.
