Unpostable. Copyright 1913 by M.A. Donohue & Co. Chicago

A turn of the century Brides Memory Scrapbook - THE BOOK OF THE BRIDE

Illustrated by Meta Morris Grimball with title page by Bessie Pease Gutman

It contains a total of 52 pages, including a tissue sheet covering the color painting of a bride descending a staircase.

Picture Copyright 1911 by Gutmann & Gutmann, NY

Okay here is why it is unpostable someone got at it with a pair of scissors.  

Pieces of 8 different pages have been cut out of the book. Mostly straight cuts removing about a quarter of the page.

Page titles include 

Where First We Met  - undamaged

Engagement Gifts -  cut/damaged

Wedding Gifts - undamaged

Photograph of the Bride - undamaged

Photograph of the Bride's Parents - undamaged

followed by several undamaged decorated blank pages (no titles)

then a page cut in half

Reception Gown - undamaged

then a page cut in half

Morning Gown - undamaged

then two pages cut down by about a third

one more blank (untitled) decorated page

then a page cut in half

First Day at Home

followed by several undamaged decorated blank pages (no titles)

and one more page cut down by about a third.

The book is still usable and would be great for photos of your great grandmothers wedding.
