1824 Presidential Campaign Engraved Proof Portraits of J.Q. ADAMS-Andrew Jackson

by Early American

August 30, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: PoliticalProof Portraits of John Quincy Adams & General Andrew Jacksonby William Harrison Jr.c. 1824 Presidential Campaign Period, Engraved Proof Copperplate Impression Portraits of Candidates John Quincy Adams and General Andrew Jackson, Engraved by William Harrison Jr., Washington City (DC), Choice Near Mint.1824 Presidential Campaign Proof Impression, Pair of Engraved Portraits of John Quincy Adams and Gen. Andrew Jackson. The deep die impression of the Copper-Plate measures 8.25” x 4” within a larger heavy wove paper sheet being overall 13” x 12” the impression seen at center. Each portrait is inside a circular design with text below identifying the subject. At left of each portrait text reads, “Eng.d by W. Harrison Wash n City.” Sharp and distinct, with excellent well inked impression which is deeply embossed from the plate into the master sheet. These candidates were Secretary of State John Quincy Adams of Massachusetts, against Senator (General) Andrew Jackson of Tennessee. Extremely rare, specially being a deep a Proof Impression of these two very historic 1824 Presidential Campaign Candidates. The very first example we have offered, excellent for display.In the United States presidential election of 1824, John Quincy Adams was elected President on February 9, 1825, after the election was decided by the House of Representatives. The previous years had seen a one-party government in the United States, as the Federalist Party had dissolved, leaving only the Democratic-Republican Party as a national political entity.In this election, the Democratic-Republican Party splintered as four separate candidates sought the presidency. This process did not yet lead to formal party organization, but later, the faction led by Andrew Jackson would evolve into the Democratic Party, while the factions led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay would become the National Republican Party and then the Whig Party.The presidential election of 1824 is notable for being the only election since the passage of the Twelfth Amendment to have been decided by the House of Representatives in accordance with its provision to turn over the choice of the president to the House when no candidate secures a majority of the electoral vote. It was also the only presidential election in which the candidate who received the most electoral votes did not become president (since Andrew Jackson's plurality of electoral votes was insufficient to prevent the election from being thrown into the House of Representatives).The election of 1824 is often claimed to be the first in which the successful presidential candidate did not win the popular vote; however, the popular vote was not measured nationwide at the time. Several states did not permit a popular vote, but rather allowed the state legislature to choose their electors.(From Wikipedia)
