Description:

A Wonderful Piece of Ephemera From the Presidential Election of 1836 Depicting Martin Van Buren [Van Buren, Martin (1782-1862)]. [Johnston, David Claypoole (1799-1865)]. [Political Campaign Transformation Card Depicting Van Buren and an "Ugly Mug" William Henry Harrison]. N.p., [1836]. 4" x 3-1/4" color lithograph mechanical paper slide card. Light soiling, faint dampstaining to outer edges, colors vivid. A well-preserved item. $300. * The card depicts a smiling Van Buren. He has a glass in his hand with the initials MVB. The caption below reads, "A Beautiful Goblet of White House Champagne." When the card is moved his face is transformed into a frown. His glass is replaced with one initialed WHH. The caption reads: "An Ugly Mug of Log-Cabin Hard Cider." Issued by Harrison supporters, the card depicts Van Buren as an out-of-touch elitist who would not advance the cause of Jacksonian democracy, embodied by the farmers, artisans and laborers of the West and South and who drink hard cider. Johnson was an important American cartoonist, printmaker, painter and actor. He is best known for his caricitures, cartoons and portraits of well-known American and British actors.
