C1865 small red leather Carte de Visite Civil War Era photo album with 25 pages to display 50 CDVs. The brilliant red binding is in superb condition (no tears or splits) having all 8 original brass backed porcelain rests with the working clasp also having a small porcelain bead. Note the embossed & gilded page edges. There are issues however. The first page has a number of tears the prominence of which will be diminished once a photo has been inserted. Most of the other pages are in fine shape but 8 have a tear, none have paper missing. Please inspect my photos. This antique album is of the earlier variety having all arched openings. It is also smaller than most. There is no maker's front page & no index. All end papers are present and in fine condition. Displays extremely well! Measures 5.5" x 4.25" x 2.5" approx.
