Author: MELANESIA ( ? ) - PHOTOGRAPHY Title: Collection of 22 original photographs (Albumen prints).
Description: 6. Collection of 22 19th century albumin prints mounted on 12 paper leaves (20 mounted recto and verso), some of the photographs are numbered, in the negative, in reverse handwriting (e.g. N° 12 , N° 16). The pictures show indigenuous people, some posing before a large screen. Curiously the photographer did in some case nothing to hide this background feature but instead took pictures which clearly show the surroundings left and right from the screen. Photo size 120 x 170 mm, the photographs clearly cropped by hand , with scissors, the paper show a watermark (???) Frères 1876. A few photgraphs show a faded blue oblong rubber stamp which is nearly illegible, but which ends in ..Photographo ( in reverse). .
