A memento from a Victorian time, a velvet covered autograph album. Signature on the first page gives the owner's name as Carrie ( Randall? last name is not fully readable) at Xmas 1888. Not all, but most of the pages are filled with lovely sentiments, including the person's name, town and date. Dates are from 1888 to 1894. The book is from upstate New York, near the Rochester area. Name of small towns include Genesso, Mount Pemboke, Medina, Alba, Coldwater, Macedon, Caledonia, Wellsville Oak Corners, and Churchville, with most from Churchville. The size of the royal blue velvet album is 5-1/4" long x 3-1/4" wide. Edge of each page is gold leaf.
Condition of the album is almost mint. No wear to the velvet nor any of the pages. No loose pages. Very clean.
