A beautiful 6" x 9" production consisting of 14 leaves with painted floral designs on gilt edges, each page having a capacity of two images, silk endpapers, all bound into a tooled red leatherette cover affixed with two brass hasps. A front free endpaper is inscribed as follows: "New York City / April 5th, 1864 / Presented to Mr George Miller by the members of a recruiting party of the 57th N.Y. Vols. As a slight token of their Friendship and Esteem. Edwin H. Storey / Charles W A Jackson / Nicholas Stobber / Robert G Russell / Egbert McLaughlin / John M Corine / Charles F. Eichorn." Within are 29 CDVs and one 1/9th plate tintype. Of these, there 13 CDVs depict soldiers in uniform. The remaining sitters are in civilian dress, with two being women. CDVs with visible backmarks show origins in New York City, Williamsburgh, New York and Jersey City, New Jersey. In order of appearance (with notes as written) identified soldiers are George C. Cade, Richard S. Alcoke, Captain William Reid, C. F. Eichorn (wd. Chancellorsville), George H. Brengel ,1st Lt. M. K. Reily (captured 6/12 - 64), George J. Beeler (wd Reams Station) and 1st sergeant Nicolas Stobbee (WIA Antietam). Three of the soldiers pictured herein wear the clover leaf badge denoting the 2nd Corps, Army of the Potomac. The 57th was indeed part of that relentless machine grinding away at General Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. From the Peninsula in 1862 through the fall of 1864, this fighting New York regiment participated in all of the major Eastern engagements, including Gettysburg. 194 of her officers and men died from disease and on the battlefield. This important historic album shows external wear, has light internal browning and a loose spine. Overall it is quite presentable and in good condition.
