About This Item

Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., 1856. This was the platform for the first national Presidential election (1856) with a Republican candidate, John C. Frémont. A RARE publication in its own right ( Rare Book Hub notes last copy appearing in a dealer catalog in 1970). This copy rendered unique and historically significant by the original owner's addition of 78 blank pages which he mostly filled with pasted in contemporaneous newspaper clippings, including 7 pp. of the Democratic Party Platform of 1856. Other significant clippings are headed: The Sanford Letter, Wash. Aug. 21 1848 2 pp.; Kansas Affairs-Official Instructions to Gov. Geary and Gen. Smith Wash. Sept.3 1856; Kansas Slave Code 4 pp.; Who Are the Disunionists ?; 4th of July Toasts in South Carolina: The White Man Shall Be a Slave If a Laborer: Slaves, Horses and other Cattle, a Sale by J.B. Sproull & Co. 1855; and The Buchanan Democracy Hate Freedom. Overall approximately 40 newspaper clippings pasted in, with some marginal writings and notations in ink in the handwriting of the original owner, who although unnamed, appears to have resided in Greene Co., OH and was most definitely a Republican ! Very Good, bound in sewn brown leather, 78 blank pp. with contemporary newspaper articles pasted onto most of the blank pages; the Republican Party Platform, 36 pp.; Declaration and Constitution, 32 PP. Whenever any other copy of the 1856 Platform comes to market, it is unlikely to be as intriguing to historians and collectors as this copy.. First Edition. Leather. Very Good. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall.
