[Scrap Book, 19th Century color Images, Chromo-Lithographs, Engravings.]
Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the scrapbook.
Personal visual Scrapbook.
Published c. 1880, America.
79 pages, hundreds of different images. Contains mostly color lithographed images, plus some black and white wood engravings. Some hand colored images.
Period gift cloth binding, gilt and embossed cover decorations. Front joint split, spine cloth loose, cover held only by binding ribbons. Well worn as typical of scrapbooks, various faults impossible to describe, every single page shown in video so please watch. Paper used was wood pulp, so today it is brittle and easy to chip, however all the images remain well preserved as issued.
Color images would all likely very easily float free if desired as is true for most 19th century scrap albums.
Contains a fascinating range of often interesting images, many no doubt random one of a kind survivals.
Book measures: 12" H X 10" W.
