Vintage 1800s Ricordo Di Genova Italian lithographed antique photography book.


Ricordo Di Genova is a collection of late 19th century photographs of Genoa Italy reproduced here by lithographic method in an accordion style tourist album most popular in the 1880's and 1890's. This album features gorgeous epic architecture and cityscapes. There are many snap shots of Cathedrals both inside and out, city scenes with horse drawn carriages and trollies and other striking glimpses into the past.
This piece is in worn antique condition. Some of the pages are loose from the binding. The cover has wear and some of the pages have wear near the binding (small creases or ripples in the paper). Has creases at the edges of some pages. (see photographs) I am not 100% sure of it's age because it does not have a copyright but it is definitely from before 1920 and is most likely from the 1890s.
The captions (I believe) are in Italian.
This piece has 18 black and white glossy plates and an absolutely stunning red and gold front and back cover done in the ornate opulent style of it's time.
