19 Democratic Party Campaign Broadsides for the Elections of 1938

[Washington, D.C.]: Democratic National Campaign Committee, 1938. 19 quarto broadsides (12" x 7-1/2" - ca. 30.5cm x 19cm), with text and illustrations printed recto-only in black on variously-colored stock. Light upward curl along lower edge, and a few broadsides with subtle toning to extremities; two examples with some old, faint splash marks, and a handful with modest wear along upper or lower edges, along with some small nicks, short tears, and attendant creases; Very Good to Very Good+.

A near-complete set of broadsides (3 lacking) trumpeting the accomplishments of FDR in his first term and warning against the regressive social and fiscal policies of the Republicans. Each broadside on a different theme: Housing; the WPA; Trade Policy; Taxes; Farm Relief, etc. The broadsides were issued in 1938, probably for the mid-term elections of that year. OCLC shows none of the broadsides to be separately cataloged, though we note sets held at Stanford and the Wolfsonian.

Price: $650.00
