CDV album cover (Closed)
National Gallery of Canada, The Origins of Photography: The Matthew R. Isenburg and Enhanced Isenburg Collections 1840-1880
The front cover of this album portrays the statue of Peter the Great of Russia which was unveiled on August 7, 1782 in St. Petersburg including the giant rock on which it was placed thus it was less than a hundred years old when this album was made. A combination of paint and mother of pearl applique sets off this lovely album that stands over 12' high.
