[Broadside]: Democratic Catechism of Negro Equality. Who said that all men are created equal? Thomas Jefferson, the Father of Democracy...

Philadelphia: Johnson's, (1864).

Price: $1,250.00

Unbound. Second edition (first published with the date "July 4, 1863" appended to the title). 6.5" x 9". Employees three different sizes and styles of type. A little foxing and edgewear, very good. A campaign document listing 16 supposedly benevolent acts by or mutual interest with the Democratic Party, apparently to convince newly enfranchised Blacks to vote for Democratic Party candidates, who would likely have been strongly disposed toward Lincoln and the Republicans. For instance:

"Who gave the negroes the right of suffrage in New York. The Democratic Party.

Who married a negro woman, and by her had mulatto children? Richard M. Johnson, a good Democrat.

Who elected Richard M. Johnson Vice President of the United States? The Democratic Party.

If President Van Buren had died, and Richard M. Johnson had become President, who would have become the Democratic mistress of the White House? This same negro woman."

Very scarce. *OCLC*locates two copies of this edition; and six of the first edition. Not in the *Catalogue of the Blockson Colection.*.
