EXTREMELY RARE AND EARLY COATED-STOCK BROADSIDE

[JACKSON, Andrew (1767-1845)]. Proclamation, by Andrew Jackson, President of the United States. New York City: Charles Wright & Co., n.d. [1832]. Folio (432 x 356 mm). Lithograph broadside on coated cardstock printed in bronze with a decorative border, pinhole at upper margin, some marginal discoloration, remnants of new tape hinges on verso. AN UNRECORDED PRINTING OF JACKSON’S NULLIFICATION PROCLAMATION. In 1832, during Andrew Jackson's presidency, the Nullification Crisis unfolded as a heated dispute over the Tariff of 1828, deemed the “Tariff of Abominations,” which imposed high import duties. South Carolina, led by Vice President John C. Calhoun, asserted the right of nullification, arguing that states could declare federal laws unconstitutional. In response, South Carolina passed the Ordinance of Nullification in November 1832. Jackson vehemently opposed this challenge to federal authority, issuing a forceful Proclamation asserting the supremacy of the Union. The crisis was temporarily resolved with the Compromise Tariff of 1833, proposed by Henry Clay, which alleviated some Southern concerns. This event underscored the ongoing tension between states’ rights and federal power, foreshadowing deeper conflicts that would contribute to the lead-up to the Civil War, and is considered one of Jackson’s most consequential actions of his presidency.
