This fine Carte de Visite (CDV) photo album is the large version of another Samuel Bowles album I have listed. This one measures 9.5" x 7.5" x 2.5" approx. Its 25 gild edged pages will hold 8 images each for a total of 200. The amazing part is how well they are preserved. Very clean with only a few very minor tears. No foxing either. Just some penciled names here and there. I imagine the previous owner removed all the CDVs to sell them one at a time. There are 3 groups of pages, 1 has fancy light brown outlines, another a lovely green and the 3rd a strong red. All move with ease. The title page is in mint condition. There is a 2 page blank index at the back. The gilded brass clasps are intact & working. The 8 brass edged porcelain rests are all present. ISSUE: 2 tears to the leather spine at the top the longest one measuring 3/4 inch as well as some flaking. Both the embossed and gilded leather boards are in excellent condition. Please see my photos. Made by Samuel Bowles & co. of Springfield, Mass. c1865.
