ANDREW JACKSON'S FAREWELL ADDRESS [caption title] - Jackson, Andrew - 1837. 
[N.p. 1837]. - Broadside on silk, 29 1/4 x 18 inches. Printed in two columns. Minor soiling and wear. Near fine. A handsome broadside printing of Andrew Jackson's farewell address, printed within a decorative border on peach silk and headed with a portrait of President Jackson, topped be the eagle of the United States. Printing on silk was a popular practice in the early decades of the 19th century, and several variations exist of Jackson's speech - though none is quite so visually striking as this. In his farewell address Jackson urges, above all, the preservation of the Union.
