About this Item

Two unique albums. (No. 1) Cloth-covered flexible boards, bound with thin black rope, typed label on inside front cover (see title); oblong 8vo (11.25 x 7.25 inches); unpaginated (approx. pp. 50), black heavy cardstock leaves with b/w photographs (silver gelatin prints) affixed with corner mounts. (No. 2) Green wraps, bound with thin green rope, typed label on inside front cover (see title); oblong 8vo (11.5 x 8 inches); unpaginated, (approx. pp. 50), grey heavy cardstock leaves with silver gelatin prints affixed with corner mounts or directly to the pages, many with tipped-on handwritten labels. Photo sizes range from 1.5-by-2.5 inches up to 3.5-by-4.5 inches, with anywhere from 2 to 9 photos per page -- over 100 images total in each volume, in sepia and b/w. Covers a bit wrinkled and chipped along the edges; leaves lightly rubbed at corners; a few images lightly rubbed or faded, though in excellent condition overall. Some light silvering here and there, rather nicely so. Two photo albums, composed mostly of city- and landscapes, and images of Navy vessels. It is almost certain that our photographer is himself in the Navy, considering the extent of his travels and the nature of the photographs, which are usually aimed at a passive subject -- a ship, a landscape. The first album includes a few pictures of the sailors aboard their ship, posing as a loose group in their bunks, or a uniformed group on deck. The rest of the images (spread across both volumes) that include people, usually show them going about their business (a street market, a young man climbing a palm tree), with only a few casual group portraits of men and women, either in uniform or in civilian clothing. While the title labels are specific to China, Japan, New York, Egypt, etc., the "Photos Diverses" include other major world cities (it appears as though our photographer visits Italy and France), what appears to be barracks, the inside of a factory, the occasional landmark or artifact, and, again, ships. A lot of ships -- naval and otherwise -- from afar or from the deck. Bookseller Inventory # D4273
