Beautiful album composed of photographic portraits, original photographic prints from the 1860s-80s in visitation card format.
Includes 98 portraits 3/4 of which have a handwritten name in the lower margin, which is rather rare. Indeed, portraits in this type of album are often anonymous when they leave the family home.
Carefully bound in a luxurious period album, portraits slipped into the plates in a gold-printed frame.
Beautifully made binding in brown shagreen, two raised bands stamped with a blind-stamped floral motif, all edges gilded. Missing the clasps.
The album and the photographs are in good condition.
There are portraits of family members:
Comte de Waresquiel
Comte de Campaigno
