    4 1/2 x 5 3/4" paperback book by C. W. Taylor, titled "The Imaginary Conversations of 'His Excellency' and Dan." Published in 1888 by Cupples and Hurd of Boston, the 96-page campaign book is decidedly anti-Cleveland. It contains many cartoons (the characters depicted in silhouette) with "conversations" relating to the election campaign and the poor prospects for Cleveland's re-election. We believe "Dan" is David Hill, who succeeded Cleveland as Governor of New York. One cartoon discusses the "Cleveland Shirt" which the president thinks want to buy, but Dan explains it is the invention of a measly Republican and is so constructed that it can be worn right-way up or upside-down, with the same effect. Back cover slightly loose and some minor loss to spine; else, very fine.  Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
