1870s/1880s autograph album of Lena May Mitchell of Lewiston, Maine.
Approximately 5-1/2" x 3-1/4", the album contains 49 pages signed by Lena, her relatives and friends. One page in the middle of the album has been removed, and the back cover and spine are missing. It's possible that a page or more is missing from the back.
