Louis Rousselet Vintage Albumen Photo of India ASP72-8

Albumen print, 6"h x 7 1/2"w (15 x 19 cm), by Louis Rousselet. French photographer Marie Théophile Louis Rousselet (1845-1929) traveled extensively throughout India as a young man in the years 1863-1868. When he returned to France, his photographs of his travels were published by Goupil et Cie of Paris in a two volume set comprised of 160 mounted albumen photographs and titled "Voyage dans L'Inde". The book has become very rare, with extremely few complete copies located to date. This is plate number 123 of the series, titled; "Mausoleum of Rajah Buktawur, Ulwur". Attached to a cream paper mount measuring 9 1/2"h x 10 3/4"w, with printed photographer's and publisher's credits, series and plate titles in French and English. It's possible that this is an extra plate that was never bound into a volume, and sold seperately by the publisher or photographer. Light foxing to mount. One very faint patch of staining to mount which extends to extreme upper right corner of photo. Else, in fine condition with superb toning. Scan of mount available upon request.

14 Woodbury print portraits of eminent British men of the Victorian era by the studio of Lock & Whitfield. Samuel Lock and George Whitfield formed a partnership in 1856 and opened a studio on Regent street in London, followed by a branch studio in Brighton. They are best known for their work " Men Of Mark-A Gallery Of Contemporary Portraits", a series of volumes issued between 1876-1883 of prominent British men. The portraits were reproduced as oval shaped woodbury prints. Each was mounted seperately to a cream colored page within a decorative oval border. Printed below this was the sitters name and, at the bottom of the page, the studio name and the words "Woodbury Process". Inevitably some of these volumes were broken up for loose images. These 14 portraits are such. Each oval measures 4 1/4"h x 3 1/3"w (11 x 8.5 cm) on a page measuring 10 1/2" h x 8"w (26 x 20 cm). All portraits are in fine condition with superb toning. A few pages soiled and/or marked, most clean and bright. Additional scans available upon request. To be sold as a set. $125.00

Horton Bros. Cabinet Card ASP151-8

Albumen photograph mounted as a cabinet card of a girl posing in her winter attire of fur-trimmed hat, coat and fur muff hanging from a cord around her neck. Even though a little girl, she has a very imperious look on her face with her icy blue eyes and the downward curve to her mouth. Perhaps even at that age she was well aware of the advantages she was born into, as her luxurious outfit shows. Studio mark of "Horton Bros., Providence, RI ". In fine condition. $25.00
