Rare graphics on James K. Polk's inauguration...
Item # 633049
April 19, 1845
THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS, England, April 19, 1845 Page 4 has two prints on the "Inauguration of President Polk", one showing the: "Approach to the Capitol" and the other: "The Oath" with related text.
Given this event precedes any illustrated newspapers in America, this London issue may be the only periodical with graphics on Polk's inauguration.
Sixteen pages, very nice, clean condition.
