1860s 1870s German & Austrian Royalty, Military, Political, Scientific Portraits For Sale
About eighty-six cartes de visite depicting German and Austro-Hungarian royalty, military and naval officers, politicians and scientists from the 1860s through the 1870s. The collection appears to have been assembled in the 1870s by a British collector- the sitters are identified on the backs of the cards, with some inscriptions referring to the sitter's rank in the Prussian-led army of the war of 1870. A few are artist-drawn portraits (probably half-a-dozen), the rest photographs. Some sitters appear on two or three cards. The majority are in acceptable to good condition- a number (about 27) have residues of paper mounts adhering to the surface or minor tears- I've shown these with their edges showing so the damage can be assessed. I've managed to identify the majority- the writing on the back's a bit cryptic at times. Notable cards include Mad King Ludwig, Kossuth, Liebig, the Emperor and Empress of Mexico and of course Mr and Mrs Bismarck (there's several different poses of him)
