    Highly Decorative Photo Album of CDV Portraits. 8 3/4" x 11" deluxe leather and brass album containing 75 CDVs (albumen and tintype) picturing ladies, gentlemen and children. All in very good condition. The cover of the album is accented with a brass roundel in the center featuring a three-dimensional horse's head, along with four similar roundels in the corners (of smaller size) with a horse and three dogs (one of which is not secured firmly). Four of the more interesting CDVs depict a fireman from Hose Company No. 4 of Wooster, Ohio, an unidentified rural settlement with a "Groceries/Dry goods" store in the foreground (J. Biar Photographer), a fine image of an elderly African American servant with Whitney & Beckwith of Norwalk, Connecticut back mark and a cook holding a long knife. The leather album is the finest of its kind we have seen.
