Five 4 by 6 inch sepia toned photos of landmarks from the novel Lorna Doone tipped in to front fly leaf of bound copy of the novel. Presumably from 1890's. Fly leaf paper is heavier than text block, likely the extra pages were intended to hold the photos. Handwritten captions under each photo tie the place to incidents in the novel.
