Though attributed to Crockett, this bitter attack on Jackson and Van Buren was almost certainly written by someone else, possibly Augustin S. Clayton. First printed in 1835 (this is likely actually the second edition rather than the "tenth" described on the title-page), the work failed to do much lasting damage to either Van Buren or Jackson despite its impassioned criticism of their careers and principles. 12mo. 209, [1], 6 (adv.) pp. Sabin 17567; Howes C899. Embossed textured cloth, worn, corners bumped, front and back covers pressure-stamped by a now-defunct library, spine with traces of a much-chipped paper title label and with a paper shelving label. Front pastedown with institutional bookplate, front free endpaper with old pencilled ownership inscription, back free endpaper with pocket. Pages age-toned and foxed, with corners occasionally dog-eared. Bookseller Inventory #
