Remaining leaves blank. Bookplate of George F. Steele to pastedown. Album good only. Hinges cracked, edges worn. Board bowed. Contents however sound and overall near fine. (Item ID: 14156)

A beautiful photographic study of the earliest planned community in the U.S. Includes a picture of founder Joseph Sears (above right), as well as those of several houses and buildings. Most images though of natural surroundings, an interesting facet as Kenilworth was also one of the first communities to incorporate landscape architecture into its development. While the albumís exact purpose is unclear (though we presume promotional or perhaps survey), a fine assemblage by an accomplished photographer that exhibits a strong Pictorialist influence.
