[^] 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.
