Summary: An illustrated sheet music cover for a set of 'popular airs' for the piano, dedicated by the publisher to 'Whigs of the United States.' A Whig campaign piece, the work eulogizes the supposed humble rusticity of presidential candidate William Henry Harrison. In an oval medallion flanked by American flags is a bust portrait of Harrison. Beneath it lie crossed olive branches and above, in a burst of light, stands an eagle holding a streamer that reads 'The Hero of Tippecanoe.' In the background are Harrison's log cabin with smoking chimney (on the left) and the United States Capitol (on the right). The music sheet sold for fifty cents. Notes: Entered.. 1840 by F.C. Unger.
