Omschrijving
"E.B." - Manuscript; Monogramm Album (with ciphers and crests, etc.) - 1860
Curiosa en ephemera, Kunst, Wapenkunde - Aantal: 1 - Album

Size 25.8 x 18.5 cm


Superb private Monogram Album with some 71 sentiled plates, all executed but hand with hand numbered pages (a few empty). Each plate has a profusion of engraved and individually mounted monograms.

Through the Victorian era, customization for anyone but the wealthy and growing middle class remained unaffordable. For those able to afford it, collecting other people’s monograms became a competitive Victorian sport, primarily in England, but also the Continent, and America. Our example on offer appears to have been put together in Switzerland (where it was bought).

Minor rubbing to leather.
