Matthew Carey’s defense of Jackson’s position against South Carolina and the ordinance of nullification. Carey seems to have had various editions of this example of his political economy pamphlets churned out over the course of 1832; this version includes the 4-page black bordered “Epitaph” to the Constitution of the United States, not noted in the pagination of the American Imprints entry but given a separate entry (suggesting possible separate issue). American Imprints 11645 (Crisis) & 11653 (Epitaph).
