INAUGURAL ADDRESS. Delivered on being sworn into office March 4, 1829.
[Boston?] District Court of Massachusetts copyright: E. Bailey, 1836. Complete text of Andrew Jackson's first inaugural address, engraved throughout, printed in miniature on white glazed heavy card stock, 16 1/2 x 12 cm., enclosed in a decorative leaf border. Vignette portrait of Jackson, plus a paragraph of biographical information, centered above the text of the address: "Gen. Andrew Jackson was born at Waxsaw, South Carolina March 15th, 1767...." Jackson's facsimile signature at the end and copyright notice along the bottom of the card. Some light soiling at the edges of the card, else very good. A first edition thus. OCLC lists three copies: Library of Congress, AAS, and SMU.
A scarce keepsake edition of Jackson's first inaugural address, evidently produced by Ebenezer Bailey. A later state was published by N. Dearborn in Boston in 1845, following Jackson's death. Item #66548
