Los 4051

Yellowstone Falls and Mammoth Hot Springs, "Shinimo Altar from Brink of Marble Canyon of the Colorado River, Arizona"; "Navajo Church near Fort Wingate, New Mexico". 1870s. 5 albumen prints. Each circa 33 x 25 cm. 2 with photographer's name (Hillers) and title in the negative in lower corners, each mounted to board (some soiling/ foxing).

John K. Hillers began making photographs while exploring the terrain around the Colorado River in 1871. Part of a survey team led by John Wesley Powell, a geologist and ethnologist, Hillers was originally hired as a boatman. He became increasingly interested in the work of the team's photographer, began acting as his assistant, and by 1872 had become the expedition photographer. From the 1870s until about 1900, Hillers continued working for Powell, who became the first director of the U.S. Bureau of Ethnology. The emphasis of Hillers's work gradually shifted from geology and geography to archaeology and ethnology. He spent almost twenty years exploring the Indian Territories, California, the Southwest, and the Southeast, eventually producing a sensitive record of Native Americans and their way of life. The Bureau of Ethnology and Geological Survey publications reproduced his work, and examples also appeared at numerous international expositions. – With strong tones and in very good condition.

Italy
Views of Rome and surroundings, Florence, Pisa,...

Los 4055

[^] Photographers: Gioacchino Altobelli (1814 - 1879), Pompeo Molins (1827 - 1893) and others. Views of Rome and surroundings, Florence, Pisa, Naples and Pompeii, Genua and Monaco. 1860s. 59 large-format albumen prints. Each circa 28 x 38 cm and smaller. Mounted to gilt-edged album boards (slightly warped, some foxing), bound in contemporary leather album (edges rubbed) with gilt-stamped ornamentation on front cover.

Between 1861-1865 Molins worked together with Altobelli. Both were trained painters who turned to photography. The presence of multi-figure staffage in many of their photographs points to their background as painters. As Molins' daughter was married to a Papal supplier, he had good connections to the Papal State. He therefore was permitted to photograph Pope Pius IX, whose portrait is at the beginning of the album. In 1893 Molins' photo studio, in which John Henry Parker's negative archive was also stored, was completely destroyed by a fire in Palazzo Negroni-Caffarelli. The present album contains stunning views of architecture in Rome and other areas in Italy. – A few with some foxing spots, some with light fading in edges, otherwise most in very good condition with strong contrasts and rich tones.
