“THE MOST PROMINENT OF THE EARLY PHOTOGRAPHERS OF EGYPT AND THE HOLY LAND”
FRITH, Francis. Sinai and Palestine. London, circa 1862. Enlarged second edition, the first volume of a four-volume set much preferred over the three-volume 1859-60 edition for the “stronger quality” of its gold-toned prints, with vintage mounted albumen print on first title page and 36 vintage mounted albumen photographs of Jerusalem, Damascus, the Dead Sea, Hebron, Gaza, Mount Lebanon and the Sinai, “some of the most exquisitely detailed images of his day,” most signed and numbered by Frith in the negative. $12,500.
