A scarce Jacksonian keepsake evidently produced by Ebenezer Bailey, an attractive engraved decorative version of Jackson’s first inaugural address, with a biographical sketch at the head of the page. Signed “Andrew Jackson” in facsimile of his signature. With the copyright notice at the foot of the text, District Court of Massachusetts copyright 1836 by E. Bailey. A later state, “published by N. Dearborn, Boston,” has title: Andrew Jackson. Was born at Waxsaw, South Carolina ... reelected in 1832 Died June 8th 1845 Æ78 yrs. Inaugural address, delivered on being sworn into office, March 4th 1829. OCLC appears to locate to copies (AAS, De Golyer), with a few “Internet Resource” copies held—presumably (one hopes) records attached only to online subscriptions of a scanned copy.
