Title:   Minette album

Seller ID:   minette

Various Boston photographers. Minette album, 105 miniature photographs, mid-19th-century albumen prints. Typical CDV album size (about 6x5 inches and fat), 25 leaves, all edges gilt with an impressed floral pattern, brown leather boards with gilt lettering on spine, gilt floral decoration and debossed pattern on boards, 2 brass clasps, 4 white buttons on each board. Resembles a CDV album but each leaf has windows for 4 little photos, about 2x1.5 inches or half the size of a CDV. Some are group shots, some are hand-colored. I've never before had a minette album up in here, so I checked online reference and various photo history books to get some background on this format. I found nothing. The minette may be a Boston-area phenomenon that never caught on with the rest of us, like candle-pin bowling. Anyway all the photographers are from Boston, including Richardson & Cleaveland, Joseph Babb, Hardy, McCormick, and The Famous Photograph and Minette Rooms at 22 Winter St. This book is gorgeous, with bright, shiny edges and functioning clasps, boards worn at the edges with some loss at the bottom of the spine. The photos are generally fine quality with little fading and occasional pencil notes identifying the subjects.
