Description: (ERITREA--AFRICA)
An album with more than 260 extraordinary photographs of Italian Eritrea titled Fondazione dell'Impero Anno IX Maggio XIV.
The elegant photographs were apparently shot by S.A. Crimella, and include stunning portraits, landscapes, architectural studies, and several panoramas. The sensitive and detailed images show hunters with their game; families posed at their dwellings and in villlages; some European architecture (including aqueducts); men and women at work; images that appear to show ritual; others that highlight modes of dress and style; as well as intimate, brilliant portraits of individuals. The album reflects articulate, careful pacing and structure. Silver prints, the images measuring 4 1/2x6 inches (11.4x15.2 cm.), and the reverse, plus 11 panoramas (6 comprised of two panels and 5 comprised of 3), overall images measuring 4 1/2x11 1/8 to 4 1/2x18 3/8 inches (11.4x28.3 to 11.4x46.7 cm.), mounted recto/verso, each with a small printed label (in Italian) mounted below the image. Thick oblong 4to with a tie binding, lightly worn and rear cover detached. 1936
