National Democratic State Central Committee of Illinois:

ADDRESS OF THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ILLINOIS.

[Springfield?: 1860] 8pp, caption title [as issued], printed in double columns. Inner margins badly worn, with old tape repairs, overlapping [but not obscuring] text on the last page. Light spotting, Good+. Bibliographers have expressed some uncertainty about the date of publication-- 1858 to 1860. Clearly, however, the pamphlet issued in 1860: reference is made to the Democrats' scheduled 1860 Charleston national convention. The Address seeks to destroy the presidential hopes of Stephen A. Douglas, who had become a renegade. For opposing the Buchanan Administration's Kansas policy, which propped up a pro-slavery government despite a rigged election that flouted Douglas's cherished Popular Sovereignty, regular Democrats set out to punish him. Douglas was stripped of his Chair of the Senate Committee on Territories; and in his home State of Illinois, the National Democratic State Central Committee paints him here as a traitor and apostate. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 34197. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, LCP.
