President Andrew Jackson's state-of-the-union address...

Item # 689408

December 11, 1830

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Dec. 11, 1830  

* President Andrew Jackson
* State of the Union Address

The prime feature would be the complete printing of the very lengthy: "President's Message" being the annual state-of-the-union address of the President, a tradition which began with Washington and continues to this day. This very detailed & wordy address takes over 9 pages and is signed in type: Andrew Jackson. The beginning portion is a bit close-trimmed at the right margin affecting a letter or two in the last 7 lines (see photos).
Other items within this issue include: "Georgia & the Indians" "Mr. Madison's Pamphlet" and more.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.

As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
