1866. First Edition. A collection of historical photographs of Venice, circa 1866. First Edition. Oblong quarto in thick, dark brown, fully embossed leather with gilt Lion of Saint Mark on front cover and gilt edges. The volume contains 40 photographs, each affixed to a thin board page with a tiny legend. The photographs in this album were taken by Carlos Naya (1816-1882) and the photography studio Anderson of Rome. Carlos Naya was a photographer and lawyer who worked with optician Carlo Ponti, and traveled extensively through Europe and North Africa. Scottish-born photographer James Anderson (1813-1877) established a successful photography business in Rome, which he passed to his son, Domenico (1854-1938) on his death. Though the legends on these photos do not specify which Anderson created them, the apparent collaboration with Naya suggests that James Anderson is most likely the artist. Both Anderson and Naya benefitted from and contributed to a dramatic boom in photography in Italy during the mid-19th century. Through their work, they offered travellers and locals alike an image of Italy as a place of cultural antiquity and stability in apparent contrast to the rapid change experienced by the rest of Europe and North America. Condition: Very Good. Boards with minimal soiling and very slight fraying on corners and upper spine. Album slightly warped upwards. Some age-toning and foxing on pages and photographs, and some offsetting. Dimensions 15.125 x 10.75 x 2.375 inches.
