290023 Autograph case, decorated with motives in gold & inscribed "ALBUM". Inside: 1 illustrated cardboard sheet (party of friends playing music in the countryside), 1 leaflet, 1 leaf with a handwritten dedication by Leop. Forster, dated "Castelnuovo 1. Juni 1858", & 28 leaves displaying "mosses gathered in the harbor of Piraeus in Greece" (handwritten note, in German). Hand-col. lith. (cover leaf). Back: Plain. Maker: Leop. Forster. 91x148 mm (case), 79x135 mm (leaves). 1858.
We know of a Leopold Forster in the field of natural science, who could possibly be the author of our album: he was a doctor & veterinarian in Prague (1824 - after 1892) & became a professor (1859) & director (1879) of the k.k. military veterinary institute. Piraeus is the harbor of Athens & there are so far 2 "Castelnuovo", one in Istria near Rijeka, the other in Dalmatia next to Cattaro: both belonged by that time to the Austrian empire. The alge have been neatly pressed onto small paper octagons, which were in turn pasted on the original album\'s leaves. They have retained over the years the whole charm of their colorful delicateness.
The upper cover of the case new attached, case slightly rubbed, inside almost intact.

Our 1/4 sheet is complete as it is. Such sheets were cut out or used as a whole, for doll\'s houses for example, which explains their similarity to wallpapers. Very good conservation.
