Jesse Denson & Isaac Hillard
RARE 1822 Chronicles Andrew Jackson, DENSON, Victory South CREEKS New Orleans PM
Hamilton, Ohio : Re-printed at the Volunteer Office by J.L. Murray, 1822. 118 pp. Hardcover in contemporary half leather and paper boards. Boards quite edgeworn and soiled. Two titles bound together. The Andrew Jackson title has its own title page and the entire work is continuously paginated. Lacks the first title page for the Hillard work and part of the ffep is present, but torn. First page of text is the preface (p.3), followed by the contents pages, thus complete minus the title page of the first work. Toned, scattered foxing. Denson's highly approving assessment of Andrew Jackson's conduct in the War of 1812 and against the Creek Indians was first published in Lexington, Kentucky and Milledgeville, Georgia in 1815. In that sense it is the third edition of the text. It was then included as the concluding section of the 1822 edition of Hillard's book, which was first published (without the Denson portion) in Poughkeepsie in 1814. Denson's text is a mixture of prose and poetry, written in a highly religious style, thereby lending Andrew Jackson godlike qualities. A strange copy of a strange title. 1822 edition of Hillard: HOWES H491. SABIN 31915. STREETER SALE 1736. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 9010 Not Ex-Lib. The full combined work has not been seen at public auction since 1945. I've done my best to describe the book, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail.
