Publisher: Mast, Crowell & Kirkpatrick, Springfield, Ohio. 1892
Publication Date: 1892
Binding: Soft cover
Illustrator: Vintage b&w Photo Plates
Book Condition: Good
Edition: 1st Edition
Scarce late 19th century photographic portfolio published in softcover. Dated Nobember, 1892 on front cover which is detached but still present. Also dated on title page. As title states, there are a hundred photographic views from around the world. Includes some photos of United States interest including a photograph of Avalon Harbor at Catalina Island in Southern California and a photo of "Mission San Juan" Capistrano near San Diego. A couple of the plates are two to the page and at end is a section of photos of world leaders including the emperors of Japan, Siam and China. However some of these portraits of the Asian monarchs look like illustrations, possibly based on photos. Contents still tight in the binding, with original staples intact. Back cover is an ad, as are the inside covers front and back. Front cover repeats the title in slightly different format from the title page. Tear across middle of right hand blank margin affects about the last half the portfolio but does not affect the photos themselves. A bit of light smudging/stains affecting some pages but pretty much confined to the blank margins and the descriptive text under the photos. A typical format for these early photo books but examples from this particular series appear to be very scarce today. Bookseller Inventory # 1750
