4029) » enlarge

Private souvenir album, probably of a German weapons dealer travelling in China. Circa 1900-1906. Circa 200 vintage collodion paper prints. Various sizes between 7 x 10 cm and 21 x 26 cm. Mounted to album boards, bound as leporello in black lacquer Japanese album (chipped in edges/corners, crack on back cover) with genre motif inlay (some pieces missing).

Apart from weapon demonstrations for high ranking Chinese officials (large-format photographs), the images show the arrival of German soldiers at the Peking train station as well as harbor scenes, street life in cities, temples, villages and landscapes in China. A small group shows destroyed Russian warships from the Russo-Japanese War and one shows a small Japanese submarine. – Some prints with light surface rubbing/buckling, some faded, some with oxidation mirroring in edges, otherwise many in good condition.
