Light scuffing to embossed boards, gilt decorations rubbed. Inside, moire endpapers VG, sewn signatures beginning to pull on a few pages, but overall still stable. Heavy weight paper is lightly toned and foxed. The scans make the foxing look much worse than it is. ; Autograph; Oblong 32mo 4" - 5" tall; This is an interesting little autograph album. Most of the entiries are to "Edd," or "Ed," or even "Eddie." Many are from men in Dayton, Tennessee and several other Tennessee towns (Evensville, Springhill. ) Some are from men at Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia, where Edd must have been a student. The entries are mostly 1887-88. Most of the entires are flowery poems or philosophical quotes, though a few are humorous and there's one little cartoon. The penmanship is for the most part very pretty. It might be possible to identify some of the E&H students or Dayon residents. Obviously the album was important to Edd since it covers several years and is in such good condition. The last few entries, oddly, are to "Allen", at Emory and Henry.
