[CHINA AND JAPAN] Group of thirty-five albumen photographs.
Includes seven images of Hong Kong, eleven of Canton and environs, twelve of general Chinese interest (including eight portraits of merchants, actors etc.), and five Japanese views. Albumen prints on card mounts (apparently never bound), many with printed labels, images approximately 8 1/4 x 10 3/4 inches 205 x 275 mm) on mounts uniformly 11 x 14 1/4 inches (280 x 660 mm). Minor soiling to mounts, images generally in sound condition.
The Hong Kong views include two by Lai Afong of the aftermath of the September 1874 typhoon. Among the Chinese photographs, the Mandarin and his wife in court dress (so titled on the attached ticket) is by the American photographer Milton M. Miller (who had a Hong Kong and Canton studio in the 1860s), as presumably are several similar studies.
