n.d. Recently rebound in full calf and with new linen joins, this charming album has seventeen thick card leaves, each with a window for a photograph. Original endpapers and brass hinge have been preserved, and eight of the leaves have delightful borders of flowers and butterflies. Minor scattered foxing and occasional light smudge. Very good. Item #535
This album came to us in a state of terrible disrepair but the fact that it was completely unused, together with its lovely floral decorations, encouraged us to replace the moulting suede covers and rotted fabric joints. The endpaper design has an Arts & Craft feel so we think it might be 1890s or early 20th century. It would make a unique and romantic gift.
