    Carte de Visite Album: Beautiful Civil War Period, 50 pages all filled. 5 1/4" X 6", 2 1/4" thick. Deeply embossed brown leather with gilt decoration overall, porcelain buttons at each corner front and back. Gilt edged pages, heavily decorated brass clasps and clasp hinges. Overall in near perfect condition with just some minor wear at top and bottom of spine. All pages perfect with no tears. 9 period CDVs of civilians including great portrait of three gents with pipes, top hats, and guitar. The other 41 images are all Union generals, admirals and important civilian personalities, including cabinet members, etc. Many of the CDVs are engravings or heavily retouched photographs, but there are also a number of clean images including Charles Sumner, Gen. W. T. Sherman, Oliver Wendell Homes, Edward Everett, Gen. Sickles and others. The album itself is marked E. & H. T. Anthony. A beautiful album with many desirable images.
