[pp] 36 Elaborately worked album by a young woman, extensively illustrated with original photographs often with decorative pen and ink roundels and foliage frame surrounds, drawings and notes as well as a page of Alice in Wonderland, Tenniel-style illustrations. Red, white and blue bound album - perhaps continental in origin - with Tunstall's name on the white sash which runs diagonally across the upper cover. Binding rubbed with minor loss of cloth to top and tail of backstrip; repairs to backstrip which has been re-attached to spine beneath, overall the binding is sound. Beginning with a family portrait Tunstall's album continues with a sequence of topographical albumen photographs including Edinburgh and Winchester Abbey, a striking page of cut photographic silhouettes which have been naturalistically mounted on a pen drawing of a staircase; one card leaf has had a section cut away, otherwise the album appears complete. 'Adelina Patti Queen of Song' dominates one page, while a sequence of accomplished copies of Tenniel's white rabbit and mad hatter fill another. Of the photographic portraits, most have been annotated with the name of the sitter making further research about the provenance of the album possible
