Blair, Francis P. and John C. Rives:

THE WEEKLY GLOBE: CONTAINING POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS, DOCUMENTARY PROOFS, &C. FOR 1843. BLAIR AND RIVES, EDITORS.

Printed at the Globe Office, for the Editors, City of Washington: 1843 Large quarto, original half sheep and marbled boards [rubbed]. pp 832, xiv + folding map of the Northeast boundary. Moderate foxing and spotting scattered throughout. Good+. Blair was a Jacksonian Democrat; Jackson brought him to Washington in order to begin the Globe in 1830 as an Administration organ. John C. Rives, the business manager, assured its financial success. As a western Democrat, Blair had distinctly Jacksonian policies: he hated nullification, the Bank of the United States, Henry Clay's 'American System' of federally-financed internal improvements and protective tariffs, Secretary of State Daniel Webster's foreign policies [especially his giveaways to England in northeast and northwest], President Tyler's pretensions to be a Democrat, and just about everything Whiggish. These sentiments are much in evidence in this offering.
