About this Item

Oblong 8vo. in grey cloth lettered in gilt on front cover. No date (circa 1895). With 200 sepia toned 4 3/8" x 6 1/4" albumen photos tipped onto 6" x 8" album pages, unprinted except for chain-link borders and with tissue guards between pages. One additional photo at the last page of the Hood's factory in Lowell. Each of the individual photographs are sequentially numbered (100 through 200, the factory image is unnumbered) and captioned as to subject. Verso of the title page is a cheklist of this "Second Series" of images, which were issued in sets of 10 photos each for each of the nations or regions portrayed---the final 10 photo sub set is "United States and Alaska" and includes images of Alaskan Indians, ice floes on the Yukon River, miners sluicing in the gold fields, , the town of Forty Mine, Alaska; Skagway, Alaska; a train running throughChalk Creek Canon, Utah; Harper's Ferry, Va; Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; Lion's Head , near Juneau, Alaska; totem poles in Alaska. Concluding pages provide brief descriptive paragraphs for each photo. Issued as a premium item by the company best know for Hood's Sasparilla (a very aggressive advertiser in the late 19th century based on the amount of trade cards and other Hood's ephemera that still surfaces); the second page contains "Directions for Inserting Hood's Photo's" into the album. Covers are very good, with gilt lettering dulled, but the album id firm in its binding and all the photos are cleanly centered. Based on the few other of these albums we have encountered, this is a very nice example. Bookseller Inventory # E5036
