Title: Album of 16 Tintypes, American Women
Publisher: 1894-1896, Massachusetts
Publication Date: 1894
Book Condition: Good
Wraps; 8vo; with 16 tintypes mounted to the first 9 leaves (2 tintypes per page) and labelled by hand. Tintypes are 2.5-by-3.5 inches. Covers detached, with rear cover missing; first leaf detached. Tintypes are cleverly mounted between two leaves, with cut-out frame on the first leaf so the image can show through; handwritten text in the (wide) margins. One page lists Northampton, Massachusetts, another Mountain Park -- so perhaps with some relation to Smith College. Names recorded are Mabel Howard, Anna Bradley, Helen Denison, Helen Foster, Lucia Wheeler, and Mrs. Calander, amongst others. In one photo, the women are looking at a newspaper, and in another, they are holding advertising signs for Honeydew Kisses. The book itself is in fair shape -- some of the pages and "frames" are torn, so, in most cases, the tintypes -- which are in excellent condition -- are easily removable. A few tintypes just a little rubbed or scratched. Bookseller Inventory # D4286
