Five prints of portraits of important men and women of the era. Each mounted on a board with decorative gold trim and printed title which is then mounted on red leather trimmed hard board and set in book as a separate signature along with a printed drawn and numbered outline of each head to index the various celebrities. The five groups include Modern Celebrities: Political, Legal, etc.; Celebrities in the Church, Science, Literature, and Art; Group of Well-Known Presbyterian and Nonconformist Ministers; and two pages of Musical, Operatic and Dramatic Celebrities. Very entertaining and a great research tool.
