This is an original Autograph Album, with scores of Handwritten notes, poems, autographs and four pencil or ink drawings, spanning the years 1877 to 1883, mostly from Lancaster, Ohio and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This Album contains 67 pages and measuring 5" x 7.75". The spine is cracked yet the contents are in overall superb condition. There is a waterstain inside the front cover which does not affect the contents. Its front page has an awesome Pen and Ink Drawing by Charles L. Schneider, showing Charles reviewing the buttermilk content of his glass, while flanked by a cow and a woman churning milk. This drawing was a gift to Jan Schneider, whose name is penciled in near the milkmaid. Also included within this Album are many signatures of family and friends, mostly during the years 1877-1880. A little farther into the book is a lovely pencil sketch of two sailing ships at sea and some people in a rowboat, Signed: "Frank E. Morris, Sept. 10th 1880 - Westwood, O(hio)."
