An interesting Albert Clarinet at the University of Edinburgh...

So I was randomly looking around in the collections of the University of Edinburgh researching something else, and I came across something else awesome-a good photo of one of Henry Lazarus's Alberts from Shackleton's collection of clarinets he had!
https://collections.ed.ac.uk/mimed/record/14995?highlight=Albert
It's one in A that Eugene Albert presented to him in 1860, as evidenced by the plaque on the bell saying:
"PRESENTED TO / HENRY LAZARUS / BY / EUGENE ALBERT / 1860 / ACQUIRED BY / LEONARD BEDDOME / 1895 / & RENOVATED FOR HIM / BY RUDALL CARTE & (Illegible word, I assume that says Co.) "
I have a photo somewhere on my phone of one of Pamela Weston's books where she gave the serial for this one, (and some of the rest of the clarinets, saxophone, and alto bassoon that were in Lazarus's estate at the time of his passing.) and she owned it too!
Really pretty horn, but just one photo and no recordings of it.
Has a nifty little wooden mouthpiece cap too-I remember @pete looking these things up some back in December!
