    Description

    James Buchanan and John Fremont Metamorphic Card A fun, 2" x 3 1/4" orange card presenting two sides of the 1856 campaign in regard to the two leading standard-bearers. (Millard Fillmore conveniently ignored!). If you hold the card upright in one direction, you see a smiling, jolly figure announcing his support for the Democratic candidate. If you turn it upside down, you now have a grimacing, bitter visage... a frowning face proclaiming support for the Republican candidate. These sarcastic cartoons are among the best ephemeral items found that articulate the marketing of 19th century political candidates. Light age and foxing, quite scarce.
