Published c. 1880's, United States.
12 leaves/ pages of lithographed photographic views.
NOTE: Many of the views show some crude early hand coloring, likely done by a child intent upon "improving" the views by adding some artistic color highlights.
Publisher's decorative gilt ornamented and lettered cloth binding. Great double page view of the Statue of Liberty begins the book.
Item is physically old and shows mostly small normal signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, particularly along the edges with some tiny chipping, one leaf with slight damage loss along top edge, clearly book has been handled, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Still attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
