Lot 8: Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 20.5 x 16.25, no date but circa 1831–1833. Unissued four-language ship's paper, left blank and signed in advance by President Jackson and Secretary of State Edward Livingston. The white paper seal affixed to the center remains fully intact. In very good condition, with tape-repaired partial separations to toned intersecting folds, a vertical fold and wrinkle passing through letters of Jackson's signature, and some chipping and paper loss to edges (most notably to the bottom right). Although this era marked the beginning of the 'Golden Age' of American whaling, four-language ship's papers issued by Jackson are quite scarce.
