[JAPAN] Two small albums of photographs of Japan and the Japanese.
Comprising a small album with 13 CDV size albumen prints on card, each identified with a notation in ink, and dated 1875-6. Two are identified on the reverse as by Uyeno [i.e. Ueno Hikoma] of Nagasaki. Light wear; and a cloth covered concertina-fold album with twelve hand-colored albumen prints of Japanese beauties, likely 1880s; the reverse with twelve hand-colored Japanese views. Images 3 5/8 x 5 inches or the reverse (92 x 125 mm). Both with light wear.
Ueno Hikima (likely the artist of all the images in the first album, although only two are on his printed mounts) was friendly with Beato, and was one of the first indigenous Japanese photographers to show his work internationally.
