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



Item # 661420

August 15, 1840

THE MAGICIAN, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Aug. 15, 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 an "Extra" edition) from June 27 - Oct. 26, 1840. Not surprisingly the content is almost entirely political. A few of the articles include: "Some Further Account of the Reign of Terror" "Martin Van Buren" "Gen. Harrison's Voracity" "The Glorious Victory of Tippecanoe" "Have We Any Laws?" "Democrats of New York! Be On The Alert!" and more.
Four pages, irregular at the spine margin, otherwise good.
