N.p.: n.d. Thick squat 8vo, 7 x 5.5 ins. 50 thick leaves each with a portrait photograph recto and verso, three tiny tintypes also loosely inserted. Original dark brown hardgrain morocco, covers with richly gilt panel design enclosing a floral design, ivory bosses at corners of both covers, brass clasps, all edges gilt and gauffred, each fore-edge with a watercolor painting of rural scenes. Slight wear at tips, generally very good. A fascinating American photo album with a triple fore-edge painting. No obvious clue is found as to provenance but loosely inserted is a small plain card inscribed in ink “John B. Dillon Christmas 1878”. Also a leaf inscribed “From Mount Vernon Va.” and a sliver of wood inscribed “Colorado”. (Item Id: 110534)
