From the jacket flap: “Abundantly illustrated with 275 extraordinary photographs, all reproduced in handsome duotone,Focus East. Early Photography in the Near East (1839-1885) presents a multifaceted, intriguing look at life in the East – from Egypt to the Ottoman Empire – while it traces the progress of some of the earliest photographic pioneers. The most comprehensive volume ever published on nineteenth century Near Eastern photography, Focus East is also the first to include every photographer known to have worked in the area during these early years of photography – missionaries, tourists, and members of scientific expeditions seeking only to document their discoveries as well as professional, accomplished photographers such as Gustave Le Gray and Francis Frith.”Condition: Very good.
