approx. 50 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with c. 50 photographic plates which are tinted blue in the sky areas.
Early pre-automobile urban views, still just street cars and horse drawn wagons with foot pedestrians.
Illustrated oblong gilt paper wrappers, paste on photographic illustration within gilt to cover.
This scarce item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, couple minor edge splits, crease down center of cover and at lower blank margin corner of t.p., one view leaf with lower corner roughly torn away slightly touching into edge of image, still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is well preserved, view book remains clean, tight and sound.
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.
