Full brown morocco, boards ornately ruled in gilt, "Autographs" stamped in gilt on upper board; oblong 8vo (198 x 127 mm); contains 78 small albumen photographs (each about 30 x 35 mm) of law school students and faculty, mounted usually to the recto but, sometimes, also to the verso. All are signed by the subject, usually also listing his religion and political affiliation, and sometimes including an inscription. The first 3 leaves are signed by the founders of the school, Ira Harris, Amasa J. Parker, and Amos Dean. Many of the students went on to have distinguished law careers -- probably very, very serious careers. An album so humorless that it's funny, one student lists his religion as "liberal" and his political affiliation as "rad rep"; another is a "free thinker" and "democrat"; another is "epis" and "1/2 Republican." The final leaf is reserved for "Jeremy Alexander, The Janitor." Some fabulous 19th-century hair-styles on display. Binding a bit scuffed. Contents fine. Bookseller Inventory # D11316
