1880's Victorian Scrap Ad Card Album

This book has items that fill the pages on a little than less than half of the pages in the book. I counted roughly 175 items (tiny little flowers and some newsclippings are not included in the count.)

The album itself is in rough, worn condition. The spine is leaning to one side as if stored crooked for some time. Well worn corners and spine...see pics for detail on this.

I have more pictures of the pages, so please write if you need to see more. The book starts with clipping of rich men of the time...

There are neat Christmas cards, New Year's cards, some of the ad cards:

E G Davis - embroideries and laces - Wash DC

Tuck Christmas card

S. L. Addison & Co Stationery WV

Prof Horsford's Baking Powder

E Walton Russell Druggist, Baltimore, MD

Dr. Radcliffe's Great Remedy

Two greeting cards with fringe

2 Silver doillie deals with printed No____ and ____yards..perhaps given with fabric purchase?

GrafBros Card

Hoyt Cards

Samuel Hunt & Sons

Willimantic Thread (several different views)

Thurbers Coffee

Cow Brand

Lord & Taylor, NY

Floral cut outs galore

1885 New Years Postcard

An illustrated reminder of Fox patent Casters

Birds galore

Lots of cut outs of women and girls in Victorian dress (a couple of these have some damage to them)

My Sugar Plum

Cupid's Assorted Matches

Large Tuck Valentine Card

There are lots of cards with no writing...advertiser is most likely on the back that has been glued.

All items are heavily glued into the album pages.

Some age discoloration and a few tears on the scrap items; items are generally in good condition, however with a little soiling from age and storage.

One page (not included in item count) was completely messed up, one item torn.

In the very back of the book, after numerous blank pages, there were several pages with numbers and below that...little fuzzy moldy nasty looking spots..perhaps they were pieces of ferns or foliage originally...no idea...but, I cut those pages out and tried not to breathe while doing so. My cuts are okay...not perfect, attempted to make similiar to other page edges in the binding.

I found this scrapbook at an estate sale of man originally from West Virginia - or his mother lived in WV in the 50's based on some letters I saw. Several mentions of WV on stores in ad cards...so, I believe this was put together by his mother or another WV relative.

Please note that I am merely a finder of things...certainly not an expert - should you need additional information regarding this item, please do not hesitate to write.
