Comments AN IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF JERUSALEM AND THE HOLY LAND, INCLUDING EARLY CALOTYPES, PANORAMAS AND RARE PUBLISHED ALBUMS. THE COLLECTION EXTENDS TO THE SURROUNDING COUNTRIES OF SYRIA, LEBANON AND EGYPT. The focus of this collection, formed over 25 years, was to acquire the finest examples of the earliest obtainable paper photographs of the most revered and historic sites in Jerusalem and its environs, taken by the most prominent photographers working in the Holy Land in the nineteenth century. The result is the largest single collection of photographs of the Holy Land to appear at auction, and a collection of the greatest historical significance, which would be very difficult to replicate today. A full list of the collection is available on request.
