$1,000.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1032-83

CDV album from Alabama, includes photographs of Confederate leaders and civilians.  Most identifications are made on the album pages, originally in pencil, and overwritten in ink.  The majority of individuals are from the Cooper family, to include Judge A. B. Cooper (born in 1800) and Judge R.W. Walker.  There are two identical views of James Cooper, who appears to be of military age; however, there is no discernable James Cooper of Alabama in the American Civil War database.

Common example commercial CDVs include Confederate figures such as General Joseph Johnston, chest-up view, New York backmark; General J.C. Breckinridge, waist-up view in civilian attire, New Orleans backmark;  General Leonidas Polk, waist-up view, New Orleans backmark; General Sterling Price, chest-up view, no backmark; CS President Jefferson Davis, chest-up view, New York backmark; John Wilkes Booth, seated view, Montgomery, AL backmark.

Backmarks include Montgomery, AL; Mobile, AL; Selma, AL; Plainfield, NJ; New Orleans, LA; Meridian, MS; San Francisco, CA.  One of the photographs is a modern picture of a tintype and inserted into a center page.

The binding of the album is split, separating the cover and shredding is evident on the remaining binding.  Both brass clasps are present and the individual CDV pages remain secured within the binding.  One of the clasps is missing an ornamental brass ribbon.

A rarely seen wartime album from a prominent Alabama family; worthy of further research.  [JC]
