    Description

    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 and his Pack or the Desperate Effort, an Over Balance." It is 18" x 11.25", uncolored, with some chipping and three tears (repaired on verso with archival tape) that partially extend into the plate.

    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.
