Album of Cyanotypes and Silver Prints of Cornell University and Ithaca, New York
1898-1905. Hardcover. Very Good+. Half morocco and gilt-lettered black cloth; oblong (290x182mm); contains 550 cyanotypes and 100 silver prints, carefully arranged, and mounted to the recto and verso of 42 heavy cardstock leaves. Various sizes, average is about 3x4 inches, and smaller; many with handwritten captions. Spine perished; boards and leaves chipped along the edges. Images are fine. A rich volume, demonstrating photography's popularity at the turn-of-the-last century, and an amateur's love of the medium. Shows the photographer at work, students enjoying college life (including a picture of a co-ed crew), campus buildings, and numerous landscapes of Ithaca. Also includes pictures of farm and family life (a cat named "Molasses" is prominently featured on one page), and trips to Lake George, Sylvan Beach, Fort Ticonderoga, and Chenango Lake. A wonderful look at the interiors and fashions of the period, with many candid snapshots of the photographer's friends and loved ones.
