    Seymour & Blair: One of the Best 19th Century Cartoon-Type Political Posters. This great 22" x 18" poster juxtaposes the likely results of Grant's election (radical destruction of the South, gold and no taxes for the rich, a beggar's life reward for the Boys in Blue) with prosperity, rule of law, easy Greenback currency, and compassionate reconstruction of the South under Seymour & Blair, "The Defenders of Civil Government." Pictured in Running for President, 1789-1896, edited by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., page 290. Excellent condition with a very minor vertical area of light discoloration which is greatly exaggerated by the book photo.
