    1824 Campaign: Most Unusual Broadside. Entitled "WANTED," it lists a number of qualities which must be possessed by an appropriate choice to be inaugurated as president on March 4, 1825. It calls for the election of a man who is "a Republican in deed and in truth" demonstrates the manners and values of the common man. No candidate is mentioned by name, and a careful reading reveals criticism and lampooning of both Quincy Adams and Jackson. The broadside appears to have been issued on behalf of the common man and to call for a return to the basic core principles of the Republic. Trivial light staining and edge roughness do not detract. Excellent condition overall. 8.5" x 11.25".
