ON SALE-10% OFF, now $35.99. "The 1889 Grand Tour Travel Album" documents an 80-day, 11,900-mile 1889 European tour by four young, unmarried women: Cora, Harriet, June and "Myself," the album's photographer, caption writer, and curator. Sailing from New York to England on the SS Celtic, they journey across Scandinavia and Europe, returning via England to New York. The album displays both commercial souvenir prints and very early Kodak snapshots taken with Myself's Kodak #1. The album is filled with views of cityscapes, buildings, candid snapshots, life on a White Star liner, and much more. The facsimile edition uses high-resolution scans from the original album pages, printed on heavy stock, with an open-flat wire binding. The album supplements the 2017 New England Journal of Photographic History, #175, where photographic historian and author Ron Polito presented his in-depth research on this singular album and its photographs, the ships, the travelers, their itinerary and other details. © 2018
