Late Victorian scrapbook.

Circa 1900.
Hardbound scrapbook, unpaginated (46 pages), 15 x 12 3/4 inches, containing approximately 90 holiday cards, trade cards, and illustrations of various sizes, mostly chromolithographic. Paper covered boards, heavy gilded decorative pictorial embossed covers. Rubbing to cover spine and extremities, chipping to lower left corner of back cover, age toning to sheets, multiple tears, light wear and abrasions to some images; cards in good condition overall, bright and attractive. The theme that emerges is one of springtime, Easter, innocence, and Christianity. Cards depict Bible scenes, fruit, women and children, chicks, eggs, kittens, flowers, and doves; some magazine illustrations are also pasted in. The large size of the scrapbook allows for some unusually large items to be included. Most images are undated but some have the dates 1887, 1896, and 1898, and a calendar toward the end is for the year 1901. The scrapbook itself has a patent date of March 1876. Item #56608
