Short-lived campaign newspaper supporting Martin VanBuren for President...



Item # 652013

October 10, 1840

THE MAGICIAN, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Oct. 10, 1840  A quite scarce campaign newspaper which existed for the sole purpose of promoting Martin Van Buren for President. The newspaper lasted but 18 issues (plus a "Extra" edition) from June 27 - Oct. 26, 1840. Not surprisingly the content is almost entirely political. A few of the articles include: "Freemen! To The Rescue!!!" "Abolition Movement--Right of Petition" "Democrats to be on the Alert" "Democrats of Pennsylvania! Be Watchful!!!" & much more. 
Four pages, a bit irregular at the margins, generally good.
