Price: $900.00

N.d., the boards are circa mid-nineteenth century, while the endpapers and blank leaves within are new and fresh. The front board has a magnificent bouquet centerpiece, with a slender gilt border near the perimeter of the boards. The rear board is simply plain black. Rebacked, the album has a beautiful Japanese-style endpaper which while not strictly-speaking of the same period as the decorative boards, complements them spectacularly. The boards have typical minute craquelature, and there are a few very minor spots of surface loss along the edges. Immaculate within.
