This invitation is to the Grand National Inauguration Ball held on inauguration day March 4, 1857. Features engraving of Buchanan in the center and a list of Managers for the event in the center. Who's Who list of managers in the center surrounded by two architectural style columns with "The Union Must Be Preserved" inscription at the lower right. Produced for the Inaugural Committee by Toppan Carpenter Co. Philadelphia. These scarce inaugural invitations are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Typical of these 1857 invitations, this one is not in perfect condition as you can see from the photos which is why this is priced so attractively. The lower right hand corner has been sliced, which we understand may have been done at the entrance door when an attendee arrived. Learn More
