Twenty-first president of the United States, succeeding James A. Garfield upon his premature death and completing his term. Item #15004
Unusual anti-Arthur handbill, 1p, 6" X 8½", n.p., n.d. . Near fine. Interesting attack on Arthur questioning his home state's apparent lack of enthusiasm for their native son. Reads in part: "If New York Republicans are so anxious for Arthur's nomination, why did they not send a delegation to the National Convention favoring his nomination? She sends 72 Delegates, only 28 of them are for Chester A. Arthur, and 42 are against him...." Given the thin, flimsy paper on which such handbills are printed, this example is in remarkable condition, clean and bright and without edge tears. Rare.
