National Republican Party:

ADDRESS AND RESOLUTIONS OF THE GREAT NATIONAL REPUBLICAN MEETING IN THE CITY OF NEW-YORK, DEC.13, 1830. SECOND EDITION.

Printed by Elliott and Palmer, New-York: 1831 15, [1 blank] pp. Folded, untrimmed and mostly uncut. Light scattered foxing. Very Good. OCLC records two copies; American Imprints does not record it. A first printing, of which OCLC also notes two copies, issued under a different title in 1830; American Imprints does not record that one either. Wise & Cronin records the first edition only. National Republicans, later called Whigs, coalesced as a political party to oppose Andrew Jackson, deemed a dangerous despot for "subsidizing the periodical press," engaging in wholesale "political patronage" and "persecution on account of political sentiment." His opposition to federal subsidization of internal improvements and the Bank of the United States also render him anathema. The Meeting urges the election of Henry Clay, the focus of opposition to King Andrew. OCLC 10686241 [2]. Sabin 54038. Not in AI, Wise & Cronin, Decker, Eberstadt.
