    Andrew Jackson: Farewell Address on Silk. Printing speeches on silk was popular in the period 1800-1840. This is a copy of the "Farewell Address of Andrew Jackson To the People of the United States." It was printed in the spring of 1837 by an unknown printer. It is Threads #90 and measures 19" x 24". It has an attractive decorative border with images of Liberty and Justice. At some time in the past, it was glued to a thin board. There is glue discoloration around the perimeter and a tear in the lower left corner where the backing board split and was reattached. Despite the defect and discoloration, it is complete and better than many examples of the genre we have encountered. Once matted and properly framed, it should display nicely and be safe from further damage.
