If you love Victoriana then this beautiful deep Burgundy embossed velvet Autograph Album will touch your heart.
With typical Victorian sentiment it is entitled 'The Happy Thought' Album and contains more than 50 pages. Some are blank, others contain delightful messages and several bear beautiful colored illustrations. There is one marvelous pencil drawn hand holding a rose signed FAH c1894. See picture #4
It was a Christmas gift to Emma in 1888 and was used for several years, and the final entry records 'last day of school at Elmore 1895'. A treasure from Illinois USA more than 125 years ago.
There are no missing pages, and they are in very good condition. The lovely embossed velvet cover shows some wear to the spine and edges, but is intact and strong. A few of the front pages are coming away from the binding slightly, but for its age it is in very good Antique condition.
A truly charming addition to a collection of American Victoriana.
