CDV-format albumen print of two girls holding an album, decorated with ivy and short poem. With backstamp for "BURGWITZ & Co. / Photographic DepĂ´t / 43, FRITH STREET, SOHO SQUARE / LONDON".   ( Inventory# ia922 )

The poem on the album cover reads:

"I WISH MY ALBUM TO CONTAIN
THE OLD FAMILIAR FACES
OF ALL MY DEAR AND VALUED FRIENDS
FOR HERE THERE PROPER PLACE IS
AND HOPE YOU'LL NOT INTRUSIVE DEEM
THE REQUEST THAT NOW I MAKE
A PORTRAIT TRUE OF EVERY FRIEND
I ASK FOR FRIENDSHIPS SAKE"

Clearly, this is the CDV, without which no CDV collection can truly be considered complete!
