LUNN,R., Francis Frith's Egypt and the Holy Land The pioneering photographic expeditions to the Middle East, Salisbury 2005. Hardcover 24 x 28 cm.[oblong] 234 pag . met ca. 100 oude en 100 vergelijkende foto's van nu.  

CONTENT:
Between 1859 and 1905, a number of photographers working in Damascus, Mecca, Cairo, Istanbul, and northern Africa captured their landscapes, towns, and monuments, bequeathing an unprecedented visual documentation of the Middle East. Gardens of Sand brings together original photographs, mostly hitherto unpublished, taken between 1859 and 1905. The archive illustrates the themes of the expatriate photographers of the second half of the nineteenth century: study portraits, royal commissions, landscapes, inventories of significant monuments and buildings, orientalist scenes, steeped in classical European imagination but also explores the confrontation between western imagination and the visual reality of the Middle East, a meeting that gave rise to a local photography, gradually moving further away from western stereotypes, and includes a critical analysis of orientalism and of photography as a means of conveying a reality of prejudices.Frith was an explorer and pioneer photographer in the last half of the 19th century who also helped develop the photographic postcard.

RAYNER, H. (with additonal notes by C. Worswick), Views in Kulu & Spiti Frith's Photo-Pictures - India series, Bath 2011. Soft cover[oblong] 21 x 30 cm. XVII & 48pages 45 photographs. ISBN 9781904289777.
" This book contains the entire Francis Frith & Co. 'Universal Series' of photographs of Kulu and Spiti that were made during late 1869 or early 1870. This set of 45 rare images are amongst the earliest bodies of photography produced of this region, and were originally taken to be marketed as individual prints. They have now all been assembled into one comprehensive work for the first time; with the inclusion of 2 additional, and previously unidentified, images from the series, that were not included in the Frith series catalogue, or widely marketed by them. Finely printed in full colour, nearly all the plates are reproduced here to the same size as the original prints (whole-plate or 61/2x81/2 in.).
It contains previously almost unseen views of the region, its landscape, architecture and people; and is both an important addition to the early photographic history of the Himalayas, and an invaluable pictorial resource for anyone interested in the early history of the Kulu and Spiti areas.
