[Smith, Matthew Hale?]:

CAESARISM. GENERAL GRANT FOR A THIRD TERM. BY "BURLEIGH," OF THE "BOSTON JOURNAL." Cambridge: 1873.

1873 Stitched, 36pp, uneven title page tanning and light rubberstamp number. Else clean and Very Good. Smith entered the copyright and Sabin attributes authorship to him. "In favor of a third term." Sabin. The "cry of Caesarism" is "a sensational joke." Grant is no "King," no "Emperor," but rather "the quiet gentleman in the White House, who smokes his cigar, and most emphatically minds his own business; who spends his evenings with his family, and welcomes all comers with a genuine hospitality." The author rebuts the arguments against a third term for Grant who, when this piece was written, had just been elected to his second. Grant is "one of the ablest rulers in the world." Quite scarce, NUC recording only four locations. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 83575. 551 NUC 0646355 [4]. Not in Miles, Eberstadt, Decker.
