About this Item

A gorgeous brown morocco binding with on both the front and back, large silk panel centerpieces, blindstamped gilt ruling surrounding the panels, gilt border detailing inside and raised bands. N.d., circa 1890. (There is an inscription dated 1890, Belfast, written in German, on the FEP.) Folio, 37 by 31 cm, and 8.5 cm thick. With 30 thick card leaves with photo or carte de visite slots, one to four, on the rectos and versos. Most of the slots are filled with photos from the 1870s to 1890s, some from Switzerland, others, from Ireland, and all are portraits. While we might assume all the people portrayed are related, and some of the people clearly appear multiple times, this would have been a large family, as was commonplace back then, with looks running all over the gamut. One commonality is the severity of expression, but that was also a norm for posing back then. The album is very heavy, weighing over 12 pounds. A few minor abrasions to the leather, and other light wear. Still a magnificant binding. Full Morocco (excepting silk panel). Bookseller Inventory # 004640

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
