Often, I buy these albums to remove the colored pages for photograph mats or scrapbooking. However, the binding and cover on this album is in excellent condition with the exception of the missing clasp. It is filled with the double sided cardboard pages for holding cabinet photographs as well as carte de visite photos. The album dates prior to 1900. There are seven chromolithograph floral pages. They are beautifully done. All of the seven pages are in good condition. There are a few smudges. Some of the other pages have tears where the photographs are inserted. The album measures 8 1/2" x 11" x 2". The albums holds 20 cabinet photographs and 40 CDV's.
