General note:
Title devised by cataloger.
Added title transcribed from gilt- and black-printed t.p., which reads: Photograph album, Philadelphia, Wm. S. & A. Martien. The publishing house of Wm. S. & A. Martien was active between 1856 and 1864, although some of the portraits may date from either before or after that period.
An index (handwritten on forms printed in gold, [4] leaves) is inserted at the front of the volume, following the title leaf. Most of the photographs also have handwritten captions.
The title and index leaves have decorative borders.
The album leaves have four double-sided rounded rectangular openings, each measuring 8 x 5 cm., cut into laminated sheets of paperboard, with triple gilt borders printed around each opening.
Some brief newsclippings (obituaries) and biographical citations about the subjects are tipped- or laid-in.
