COMPLETELY FULL Antique CIVIL WAR & VICTORIAN CdeV Photo Album, Carte de Visite
DESCRIPTION: This is a nice example of a classic original Antebellum/Civil War/Victorian period Carte de Visite photo album. Used to hold carte de visite size photos, the most popular photo medium of the day. THIS ONE IS EXTREMELY SPECIAL AND RARE AS IT IS VIRTUALLY FULL OF ITS ORIGINAL PERIOD CdVs, PUT THERE BY THE ORIGINAL OWNER, AND ALL RELATIONS OR FRIENDS!! Several of the pairs of photos are male/female of similar age, indicating that they are men /wives or sweethearts. A number of the other photos have similar mattes, indicating that they might be school friends or taken by the same photographer, etc. Some photos are groups, or nice, cute children. A few of the photos are tintypes, not CdV photos. This is a large album, containing. 25 pages, with room for 2 standard size carte de visite photos on the each side of each page, for a total of 50 photos.
THIS ALBUM IS RARE, BEING 100% COMPLETE, MISSING NO CdeVs, WHICH IS VIRTUALLY UNHEARD OF. The photos appear to be mostly early CdeV's, c.
NICE BROWN LEATHER EMBOSSED PATTERN ON THE FRONT & BACK, gold trimmed pages, and a matched pair of PERFECTLY ORIGINAL brass hinges (One or more of these hinges is often missing), but BOTH OF THEM ON THIS ALBUM ARE THERE & PERFECT. The album is in very good condition overall, including binding and covers and pages. Photos are also all excellent. It is one of the scarcest overall that I have ever had!! A VERY NICE, EARLY, UNTOUCHED, COMPLETELY FULL CdV ALBUM. A NICE ORIGINAL ALBUM AND A GREAT COLLECTION OF ITS ORIGINAL CdVs.
