Title   NEW YORK (VICTORIAN PHOTO ALBUM VIEW BOOK)

Binding   Flexible covers

Seller ID   6014

This is a photographic gift book of New York. There are 62 small photographs of scenes in New York that look like photographs, but many are photographs of prints which has been reworked to look like glossy photos. They have been printed in a rich sepia toned ink. The images are of various places, buildings, and landmarks in the horse and buggy days as well as elevated railroads. The opening photo is a miniature bird's eye view of Manhatten with Brooklyn and New Jersey spread across both pages - tiny, but clear. There are sailing and steam ships on the rivers. The look of New York of that period is captured and the variety of photos is encompassing - Cotton Exchange, Hebrew Orphan Asylum, High Curve Elevated Railroad, Grand Central Depot. The cover is a finely pebbled cloth - tan brown with a subtlely blind-stamped floral bouquet design and a banner title with the title New York and a sillouette of the Statue of Liberty. The gilt that was once on the cover has faded. The covers are thin. There is edge wear and a touch of soil. The interior is clean and bright. And without wear. The pages are in a folding accordian display. There is dime size damage on two pages (both sides of a double spread) where the pages stuck and the top layer of ink has lifted. The 62 images are on 12 pages with 3 to 6 photos to a page. It's a charming booklet. There is no publishing history. ; 8vo
