The Whig Almanac for 1844. Pamphlet
A Great Example of the Political Climate Under Whig President, John Tyler
THE WHIG ALMANAC, AND POLITICIANS’ REGISTER, FOR 1844. New York: 1843. 7-1/4” x 5”; illustrated wrappers.
Lincoln’s “beau ideal” Henry Clay graces the cover of a political almanac, which Lincoln undoubtedly saw and read. Much on Clay, including “John Tyler’s Opinion of Henry Clay (When John was Honest).” Also national statistics, articles on the Tariff question, and “Anecdotes of Politics and Politicians.” A very nice example of the Whig climate under a Whig President, John Tyler.
Very good; clean with minor foxing; lt. soiling/water stains of wraps, with minor chips, but small binding holes along left margin.
