Some with number in the negative, mounted to gilt-edged album boards (time-stained in edges, some light soiling in edges), most annotated in ink in German below the images on the mount, bound in contemporary full leather album (edges slightly rubbed) with gilt-embossed title Russland on front cover and spine. This extensive album has a large range of images that give a wide view of Russia around the turn of the century. The album is divided into four sections, each divided by a separate title board: St. Petersburg, Moscow, Nishni Nowgorod (including 3 panoramic views) and types and costume studies, particularily of more rural areas. Several photographs are most likely by Joseph Daziaro and several of the photographs in the last section of the album showing types and costumes are most likely by Williiam Carrick and Maksim Dmitrirv . – Some prints with fading along edges, some with light surface scuff marks, otherwise in good to very good condition. Lit.: David Elliott Photography in Russia. 1840-1940. Berlin 1992, see pp. 130-131 (comparable images of peasants by Carrick).
