John's Autograph and Poetry Album Dating to the 1880s
Here is an incredible antique autograph album that belonged to John, dating back to the 1880s. This wonderful piece of ephemera features signatures, well wishes, and short poems from John's friends and family from the 1880s through the 1890s. The cover features a lovely illustration of a young woman in a bonnet on a field of leaves. The album is very delicate, and is missing a few pages. Some of the other pages are loose in the book. The binding is in poor condition. Though it has its condition issues, it has inherent value as a one-of-a-kind peek into the lives of people long gone.
