The first pair of prints is a view of the entrance to the Grand Harbour (Barriera Wharf Valetta), and on the reverse of the card is a view of the Auberge de Castille. The second pair of prints is Nin Moringare, Valetta, and on the reverse of that card is the Piazza del Popolo in Rome, vista del Pincio, with a printed title and no. 6699. Handwritten titles only to the Malta views. No photographer identified, but clearly a professional. The two harbour views are full of interest, one with a dozen sailing ships at anchor alongside quayside wharves. Apparently the album from which the prints were taken was dated 1867. In very good fresh condition. 35.00


13251. Albumen Photographic Prints: Photographs: A collection of 15 Albumen photographs of the 1880 Ober Ammergau Passion Play, and 17 others.

Ober Ammergau: 1880. These prints, 20 x 27 cm, are albumen prints: 14 mounted on card, and one mounted on paper. At some time they have been removed from an album. 2 of the Passion Play scenes are mounted back to back on a single card, the others are backed by other photographs. Scenes from Ober Ammergau illustrated include a view across the valley to Ober Ammergau, a portrait of Joseph Maier the Deliniator of Christ 1880 at Ober Ammergau, (size 13.5 by 9.5 cm), Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Eden, Act 2 The Adoration of The Cross, Act 3 Christ's entry into Jerusalem, Act 4 The Seven Virgins, Act 5 Vashti and Esther, Act 6 Christ at the Mount of Olives, Act 7 The Rain of Manna in the Wilderness, Act 8 The Sacrament of The Lord's Supper, Act 9 Joseph sold by his Brethren, Act 10 Christ Sentenced to Death, Act 11 The Brazen Serpent and Christ Carrying His Cross, Act 16 The Crucifixion, Act 18 The Ascension. There are 19 other photographs mounted to the rear of the Passion play prints Two are superb prints, (21 by 16cm.), of a town gate Burgos, and Burgos Cathedral. Ten are copies of bullfighting prints of Madrid, (5.5 x 8 cm and 18 x 25.5 cm.), five are photograhic copies of other prints, (c.22 18 cm.). Some have the embossed mark of Pilotv & Loehle, Munchen. Most of the prints have a large copperplate description on the bottom of the card. The 1880 stage was demolished and rebuilt for the next Passion Play, so these are fascinating records of the event 130 years ago. The 1880 play was the first to draw large numbers of foreign tourists. The costumes were made by the Munich Court Theatre. No doubt further research would identify the photographer. The discipline of standing motionless long enough for a phograph to be taken is amazing. A nice collection of scarce photographs in very good condition. 110.00


13244. anon.: Photograph Album.

United States Sept. - Dec. 1935. 34 pp. 25.5 x 32.5 cm. Tissue guards are mostly detached, but present. Heavily embossed and gilt boards. Apparently a trip by three people, possibly father, daughter, (Cissie), and an American relative, brother (?), from the north of Ireland to the US from October to December 1935. Containing 102 monochrome photographs of a car trip through the western United States: Kansas City, Kansas State, Colorado, Arkansas, Rockies, Utah, Nevada, California, San Francisco, Pacific Coast, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, New York. "On board the Caledonia" and "On board The Duchess of Richmond". "Island north of Donegal", and four photographs in the north of Ireland: "in the Demesne", and "shops". These are dated 27 September 1935. The ship to the States was the Duchess of Richmond, October 4th. The return on the Caledonia was December 5th 1935. The photographs are from Kansas City west to California and back to Kansas City, and then to New York for the journey home. Although photographs are mostly detailed in pencil on the back no surname is given. There are photos of Uncle Ike's Post Office, Mrs Lynch's cabin, and Matt's cabin, so it is possible they were visiting relatives. The American photos are Elko with a stylised greek key type border round the image. We think these ships sailed from Liverpool, and these people travelled first class as can be seen by one of the ship photographs. More research needed. 75.00
