This is a great photograph album. The cover is a brown leather with a great patina. The top and bottom edges of the binding are frayed. The latch is intact and works perfectly. There are 16 cardboard pages/ The title page has a wonderful colored floral landscape. There are 7 colored photograph pages. The album will accommodate 20 cabinet sized photos (approx 4" x 5 1/2") and 36 carte-di-visite (CDV 2 1/2" x 4"). The album measures 11 3/4" x 9". The pages have darkened with age. There is light staining throughout. There are very few pages with torn photo holders. This album dates to the late 1800's. Nice condition for an album of that age.
