Vivid Early Photos of Rio de Janeiro
[SOUTH AMERICA - BRAZIL] FERREZ, Marc (1843-1923), & Others

[Album with Fifty Original Gelatin Silver Photos and Two Photogravures of Brazil, Mostly Showing Rio de Janeiro and Environs: Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress, Ilha Fiscal and the Customs House, Ocean Steamers and Recreational Boats, Street Views, &c.].

Ca. early 1900s. Oblong Folio (ca. 24,5x35 cm). 12 thick paper leaves. With fifty mounted original gelatin silver photos, including five large images ca. 17x23 cm (6 ¾ x 9 in), and forty-five photos from ca. 6x8 cm (2 ¼ x 3 ¼ in) to ca. 4,5x7 cm (1 ¾ x 2 ¾ in). With two mounted photogravures by Marc Ferrez, each ca. 14x27 cm (5 ½ x 10 ¾ in). All photos with period ink captions in French on the mounts (one caption relates to a group of images); both photogravures with printed captions and the photographer’s credentials. Period style black half morocco with black cloth boards. Mounts slightly waved, a couple of photos mildly faded, but overall a very good album of interesting photos.

Attractive collection of original gelatin silver photos of Brazil, taken and collected by a French traveller or resident in the early 1900s. The first two leaves of the album depict the compiler’s ocean voyage to Brazil and contain seventeen scenes on board the “Messageries Maritimes” steamer “Cordillere” (featuring numerous passengers - possibly including the compiler) and a view of a British Royal Mail steamer “Magdalene” at sea. Then follow nine small views of the Brazilian coast at Bahia, “Pernambouc” and Rio de Janeiro. Five large and lively (most likely, taken by the compiler) photos show the Guanabara Bay of Rio de Janeiro, with the Sugarloaf Mountain, Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress, Ilha Fiscal and the Customs House, a sailing ship, ocean steamers and recreational boats. The rest of the smaller photos depict Rio de Janeiro (Guanabara Bay and harbour, recreational steamboats, the Customs House, street views, “La Tijuca”), Santos (waterfront and harbour), railway tracks and a rail car with passengers. Two photogravures by a noted Brazilian studio of Marc Ferrez depict “La Rade de Rio de Janeiro” and “Baie de Botafogo.” Overall a nice collection of original photos of Rio de Janeiro and its environs in the early 1900s.
