Dorr Rebellion Broadside

"The Four Traitors, Who most infamously sold themselves to the Dorrites, for Office and Political Power. Let us not reward Traitors, but with just indignation abandon them as 'Scape-Goats,' to their destiny - forever." Illustrated broadside, 9.25" x 13" (visible). No place, circa 1845. Horizontal fold, minor toning, else near Fine. Attractively framed to 14.75" x 19".

"An illustrated broadside reviling four Rhode Island Whigs who broke party ranks to support a popular movement to free imprisoned radical Thomas Wilson Dorr... The broadside's author alleges political opportunism in the alliance of [left to right] Charles Jackson, Samuel F. Man, James F. Simmons, and Lemuel H. Arnold with Democrats to support a 'liberation' ticket in the spring elections of 1845. This notice, evidently published after the April canvass, laments the election of 'an obscure individual like Polk' and 'a pompous, self-conceited man like Jackson' as well as 'foreigners, ignorant, barbarous and uncivilized,' 'radicals, disorganisers and abolitionists assuming to be jurists' in general... The 'Four Traitors' are crudely caricatured. Jackson holds a proclamation of liberation, probably the act of June 1845 pardoning Dorr. Samuel Man is depicted as obese, sitting in a chair and holding an infant. Simmons thumbs his nose at Man, and his own coattails are in turn held by Lemuel Arnold." [Reilly]

Reilly 1845-4. OCLC records five locations under several accession numbers as of August 2021 [Harvard, Brown, Library of Congress, AAS, Dartmouth].

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
