This is a full morocco leather photographic album with raised and tooled decorations and raised and tooled decorations on the spine. This book also includes two brass clasps with decorations. The binding, the clasps and the interior hinges on this book are all in Very Good or better condition. It's unusual for the clasps, with their raised decorations to be in such nice clean, intact condition. The album contains 15 carte de visite photographs from Sacramento, San Jose, San Francisco, and Santa Clara, CA . The 16th and final carte de visite is from Mantorville, MN and is of a lady (c1860's) in formal pose, which includes a colorized jacket. The photographs are all in generally Very Good or better condition (most are Very Good+ but a couple have noticable wear). Only one card has a personal signature at the bottom, making these cards difficult to pin down.
