THE LIFE OF JEFF DAVIS, ILLUSTRATED
Philadelphia, PA:: n. p.,, 1865. First Edition. Very Good++. First Edition (only edition). Six printed pages on one folded sheet measuring 4 1/8" by 17 3/8" with woodblock illustrations of Jefferson Davis from 1860-1865. This 6 panel illustrated vignette recounts the war while poking fun at the President of the Confederacy. The images for 1864 include a chicken with the title "The Spirit of the Retreating Army" and a haggard image of Jefferson Davis titled "Jeff's Appearance at this Time". The 1865 images shows him running away in a woman's clothing with the caption "His Last Resort--A change of uniform is necessary. He now believes in Woman's Rights, and avails himself of the advantages". This Civil War Political Cartoon is a remarkable survivor with minimal archival repair on the verso, trimmed close on the bottom but all text is legible. Rare particularly in such nice condition. OCLC lists only 2 copies (Lib. Co. of Phila., NY Hist. Soc. Lib.).
