Boston, MA: G K Hall, 1991. VG+, ex art library copy with barcode and pocket on rear free endpaper, label remnants at base of spine. Unused. Stamp on title-page and verso of title-page, otherwise clean. Bright blue fine woven cloth with gilt title and large patriotic design on cover. xxi, (3), 638 pp., profusely illustrated in bw. Innuendo and mudslinging in American politics is nothing new, as this annotated collection of prints culled from the Library of Congress shows. Spanning American political history from the colonial era to the year of the centennial, this work represents important artists like Thomas Nast and Winslow Homer among its 600 black-and-white illustrations. Some readers may be shocked by the prints' irreverent tone (one print shows Andrew Jackson being roasted on a spit; many prints show a demeaning view of blacks). There are valuable insights to be found here regarding a young nation's ideas on democracy and race. Unfortunately, the lack of color and the scholarly approach limits the book's appeal to large political history collections. (Inventory #: 155742)
