Japan: 1900. Quarto. Black leather over paper boards with an illustration of three horses on the front board measuring 9.5" x 7". Contains 47 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 4" x 3" to 5.5" x 8" affixed to stiff black paper without captions. Album is very good with some rubbing and edgewear with near fine photographs. A photo album from the early 1900s kept by a Japanese family. It includes portraits of family members, military photos, and group photos of a boys school class. There are also photos of young girls in school uniforms playing outside. Another larger photo shows a group of children exercising and a small portrait shows a man in a sports uniform although the sport is unidentified. One particularly interesting image shows a group of boys in traditional Japanese warrior dress, possibly for a school project or heritage day. There are a few full family photos, either an entire extended family or a few families together, one of which was taken from a rice planting competition. A small but interesting look at a Japanese family including schooling. Near Fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
