Description: Australian Aborigines. 2 cabinet cards and a pamphlet. Just as American Indians were exhibited as curiosities in the Eastern US and Europe, native peoples from other parts of the world were exhibited in shows. They were presented as the lowest form of human. A cabinet card by Chase, Denver, shows them as they were presented. Their bodies are covered so their scarification is not visible. [3]. A cabinet card by Negretti & Zambra, London, is a closer view of the husband, wife and son. [3] In addition, this lot includes a very rare 16 page pamphlet, "A History of R. A. Cunningham's Australian Aborigines." It is complete but has tears and nicks at the edges of the 7 x 5 - inch pages. [D1} Contact us if you need more information about the pamphlet.
