Lot 35[INDIA]
Album of photographs headed "India 1914" (apparently taken 1914-15).
Group of approximately 300 views of Indian life and architecture taken by a talented amateur, printed in cyanotype, carbon, albumen, gelatin silver (with various tones), some possibly platinum-palladium prints, and several salt prints. Housed in a cloth-bound album with dark brown paper mounts, all images on mounts, most labelled in white ink as to subject or location. Images mostly 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches or the reverse, 63 x 107 mm, some smaller, a few larger. A few images detached, a couple missing, but in all sound.
Views from an Indian tour by a talented amateur photographer (probably English, given the context provided by views of the "Madras Annual Meeting, Jan. 30, 1914," in which those identified include Lady Rutland, etc. The quality of the photography is respectable, the images interesting, but what really distinguishes this album are the sheer variety of processes used.

Estimate $800-1,200
