Bureau of Engraving and Printing. hardcover. very good. Item #2101017
US Treasury Department Specimen books, also known as BEP presentation albums, were published by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) from the mid-1860s through the 1910s. Prepared upon request of the United States Secretary of the Treasury, albums were generally presented to Cabinet members, select Members of Congress, diplomats and visiting dignitaries. While no two presentation albums have exactly the same contents, each book usually contained portraits, vignettes, and/or images of buildings. Book very good, a couple of closed tears at front end papers. Housed in custom-made slipcase.
