Election of 1848:

ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF THE SUPPORT OF TAYLOR AND FILLMORE.

1848 [Washington: Gideon. 1848]. 8pp, caption title [as issued], bound in modern wrappers. Printed in double columns. Bottom margin of first page trimmed closely, eliminating part of the footnote identifying Gideon as the printer. Else lightly foxed and Very Good. "Please Circulate." Letters from Caleb Smith of Indiana and Schenck of Ohio tell Whigs they better vote for their Party's presidential ticket, despite their feelings about Zachary Taylor. The alternative is the Democrat Cass, whose election will "lead to large acquisitions of territory upon our Southern borders, no restriction upon the extension of slavery...this mad career of conquest. The election of Gen. Cass will secure the complete triumph of the most ultra views of Slavery propagandists." FIRST EDITION. Wise & Cronin [Taylor] 27. 20 NUC 0395304 [2]. Not in Sabin, Miles, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP.
