(Old Books, 19th Century Books, Travel, Tourism, North America, Canada, Quebec, Souvenir Album, Photo Album).
New Album of Quebec Views.
Published c. 1889.
14 leaves, each with multiple B&W photographic lithographed plates. Accordion style.
Publisher's gilt lettered and ornately decorated cloth binding.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding lightly age worn, yet cloth remains clean, gilt bright, overall very attractive as a 19th century tourist object.
Text block paper is clean, text block itself is detached from the pastedown inside the front cover as often seen due to weight of textblock pulling on the fragile fold line, internally well preserved, little staining or soiling, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
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.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Book Measures c. 7 1/2" H x 5 5/8" W.
