Collection of very rare photos (carte de visit, cabinet portrait and other types) from the 19th century. They are kept inside a binder and slip case for protection, and are separated by card stocks (the whole set will be sent, not just the photos). Most are in great condition (except for a few that show ageing and loss of color, like the Japanese photos). The images in this page are not to scale: some are larger than others (example: cabinet portraits are much larger than CDVs). Important: I strongly suggest that any buyer in potential should ask for images of the photos to be certain whether he or she wishes to buy them. These are real photographs, they are not later or modern reproductions. There are a total of 131 photographs.
