PALESTINE PHOTO ALBUM. 48 original potographs. Palestine, c. 1905.
Most photos gelatine silver, a few albumen prints, each measuring c. 100 x 72 mm (albumen prints a little smaller), slotted into 12 album boards and in an olive green plain cloth album in Royal 8vo; very well preserved.
Very sharp and well-defined photos of street scenes, camel resting places outside Jerusalem, the river Jordan, markets, bodouins, Palestinian Christians, the Wailing Wall, Bethlehem, Jericho, Bethany and Ramallah. These photos of mainly Jerusalem were taken at a time when camels were still in use in the Levant, and the fez was fashionable.
