Untitled Scrap Album.
Created c. 1910-40, likely United States.
c.200 pages, over 500 old/ vintage post cards, all nautical and relating primarily to ships of various types, including ocean liners.
A wonderful and unique album, offered at a fraction of the price it would cost to acquire them individually, not counting the hours of time. The video shows every page/ every card.
Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch video prior to purchase to ensure a full understanding of the book/set/item.
Publisher's cloth binding, all cards loosely inserted as intended by tabs. A random sample indicates many/ most seem to be postally used, but we have not examined each one.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Album is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, joints slightly scuffed, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book 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 book survives.
