Top hanger lacking. Light toning in spots. Example of late Victoriana. . . A friendship album from the late 1880s belonging to Minnie Brutsche, a child of German immigrants. The album was given to Minnie by her aunt, Lena Brutsche. The album is full of notes, poems, and quotes from her friends and family. Approximately half the album is in German, including notes from her mother, father, and husband. There are several original acrostic poems that spell out Minnie's name throughout the album, one of which is in German. One note that at first glance appears to have been written by a child, was actually written by an 86 year old woman (she notes her age below her signature). There is even a pressed flower tucked in-between two of the pages. There are variety of illustrations in the album. There are two sketches done in pencil - one of a bunch of flowers, and the other of a sailing boat. Additionally there are three ink drawings of a dog, swan and an owl done by the same person. What is one of the more remarkable pieces of artwork in the album is a watercolor done by Minnie's brother-in--law, which features a theorem style floral design inside a decorative boarder with a quote. There are about 10 embossed Victorian cutwork scraps (many with wear), mainly floral designs. What is the real treasury in the album though are the floral transfers that can be found throughout. They range in size from about an 1 1/2" tall to 5", and there is just shy of a dozen of them scattered throughout the album.   Lastly, there are often short notes from Minnie herself. There are some notes regarding the relationship of the individual to herself, or their career (there are two notes with the phrase 'in candy business' added to them). Additionally Minnie sometimes traces a faded date or phrase. On the two notes written to Minnie by her brother-in-laws, she notes when they died and the age they were at the time of death. The covers are a tan crushed velvet, in a design meant to resemble an animal hide. The interior pages are gild-edged. Measures 8 1/4" x 5 14" To view the album, please click on the following link: https://goo.gl/photos/FK8pdVBTHoxnD5Ho6. The covers show some minor wear caused by rubbing, this is evident on the corners and the back strip. The binding is cracked in places and the pages are loose. There are also a few loose pages, but these appeared to have been cut out at one point and then inserted back into the album.
