Leather-bound Souvenir Album "1821"

An original, Leather-bound Souvenir Album.

This is a very handsome, substantial brown leather-bound album. With beautiful gold tooling and blind tooling on the front and back covers, and gold tooling to the spine. Titled "Souvenir 1821" on the front cover and spine. Internally there are 38 pages of heavy brown paper, some of which are interleaved with tracing paper. Some pages have small slits cut to act as corner mounts, and some have small gold coloured corner mounts adhered to the page.

The pages are all blank with no inscriptions or images.
The album has historically been repaired. The front and back cover date to 1821, but the spine and pages are newer, and the corners of the covers have been reinforced. The overall effect is nevertheless very fine.
36cm x 29cm.
