    Andrew Jackson: Anti-John Quincy Adams Cartoon. During the campaign of 1828, a series of "Coffin Handbills" or broadsides were distributed that depicted Andrew Jackson as a murderer who killed personal rivals and unfairly executed soldiers during time of war. These were the brainchild of editor Peter Binns. Binns is shown here, struggling under a pile of coffins, with Henry Clay and John Quincy Adams protruding from two of them. It is titled: "The Pedlar [sic] and his Pack or the Desperate Effort, an Over Balance." It is 14.5" x 10" [sight], double-matted and framed to an overall size of 21" x 16.5". It has a 2.5" lateral tear near the top, not affecting any of the design elements. A clean example with strong colors.
