Album of Turn-of-the-20th-Century Photographs of Egypt

Estimate: n. a.
Price realised:  US$600
Lot number 158, Views: 11

Album, 27pp, 11 x 13.5 in., with four Kodak No. 2 prints on each page except the last for a total of 106 photographs. All pages contained in a portfolio with half-leather covers with the gilt title EGYPT. The photographs document a journey in Egypt by an unidentified American or British traveler. White travelers only appear in a couple of the photographs, with the vast majority split between ancient ruins, travel down the Nile River, and Egyptian people and street scenes. Most photographs are captioned in ink on the album pages and show such subjects as ruins in Luxor, Abu Simbel, Philae, Karnak, Thebes, and Giza, including the Sphinx and Great Pyramid; several views of various types of boats on the Nile; several views of village bazaars, including a view titled Curios for sale showing an Egyptian boy displaying a mummified human head; and several street scenes in Cairo and small Egyptian towns and villages, many of which feature a single resident posing for the camera. Condition: Album pages very good. Most prints are excellent. Covers well-worn and separated.
