    Description

    Henry Clay: Anti-Jackson 1832 Imprint with Cartoon. This is a 6" x 9" copy of the "United States Telegraph Extra" issued on September 27, 1832. It is 16 pages and has an anti-Jackson cartoon in which Jackson and Van Buren wait for their craniums to be measured by the phrenologist Dr. Spurzheim. A two-page poem follows in which the poet urges the doctor to "urge him [Jackson] to retire to Tennessee." Regarding Van Buren: "His largest bump - you'll find, as I should guess/ Either low cunning or deceptiveness:/ And next to these - the only one remaining - Worth special note - the Jewish bump of gaining." It has a minor damp stain along the right edge.

    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.
