    Description

    1889 W. Duke Sons & Co. "The Heroes of the Civil War" Album. This fantastic album from W. Duke Sons & Co. memorializes the American Civil War and covers both sides of the conflict. Considering that this album was printed less than twenty-five years after the end of the war, it was still somewhat fresh in people's minds, and an apt subject for both cigarette cards and a premium album. The cards this album imitates are the "Histories of Generals," with the album containing several more plates than were available in card format. The album was obtained from the manufacturer directly for a number of coupons founds in packs. These albums are certainly far rarer than the cards themselves. Measures 7x10.5." Front cover shows light creases, a moisture stain in the lower left. The back cover has creasing (one heavy) and some edge chipping. Binding is in excellent condition. Interior pages offer stunning hues and are EX to EX-MT.
