2 Various Scrapbook
Self-published 1879 First Hardcover Fine Near-Fine Ephemera Signed by Editor
Late 19th century Scrapbook for "Emily A. Thorn/ from her brother/ Mortimer//X'mas 1879" according to the inscription on the first free endpaper. Fifty-eight pages in all, each with two or more pasted-in printed cards, bookplates, advertisements, and blank invitation cards, most from unnamed sources, but a few copyrighted, such as those marked "Engraved and Copyrighted by J. A. Lowell & Co., Boston," or "Copyrighted by John A. Lowell & Co." and dated 1878-9; others by the Mercantile Printing & Stationery Company of New York, Devlin & Company Clothiers (printed by Meyer, Merkel & Ottmann, Hodgman & Company, New York Reed & Barton, the silver makers. Subject matter varies widely: some appear to be from an Oriental series of still lifes with typical bamboo foliage motifs and fans, others feature birds or sailing ships. Another group features portraits of women; rustic scenes, one labeled "Saratoga Mt McGregor & Lake George R.R.", another from Richfield Springs (New York), and one from Lake Como, Italy; a political card "To the Voters of Kings County"; personal cards; a folded business card from Providence Shell Works. Nearly all are rectangular, but several are printed on the diagonal with rounded corners that are probably menu cards. All but the three on the last page are printed in black and white; those are chromolithographs of brilliantly colored birds. All of the cards and pages are in Fine condition; none has glue coming through. The scrapbook itself is in near-Fine condition with light wear to corners and spine ends: rust-colored boards, stamped and decorated with black, gilt and silver decorations. A wonderful collection of late 19th century stationery and engraving.
