    James Buchanan: Wonderful Connecticut Broadside. 18 1/2" x 23 1/4" [sight] broadside on yellow paper, titled "Close up the Ranks!" It features a graphic woodcut of an eagle with a riband in its beak reading "Buchanan & Breckinridge". It announces two upcoming rallies of the "Keystone Club, of Suffield" just before the election, on November 1st and 3rd. The printer was at his creative best with the use of different fonts and type sizes. From a graphic perspective, one of the premier political broadsides we have encountered! Some restoration to the top center, on the word "the". Framed to an overall size of 25" x 30" [not examined outside of frame]. A great display item. Selections from the Collection of Tom Charles Huston.
