    Description

    Family Album of Tintypes and CDV Portraits and Carte by Nadar. A very interesting group of images housed in the remnants of a CDV album consisting of eight mostly 1/6 plate tintypes and seven CDVs of various members of a family including both blacks and whites. Offered together with a CDV portrait of a black minister by Nadar, Paris and E. Manoury credits on verso, and a hand-written note detailing the subject as "The minister from the Canaca Islands resident in Lima Peru Educated & speaking Eng[lish], French, Spanish & a little German." Also included is a 1/6th plate of a black man standing next to a white man, both likely ministers. Album pages in poor condition with many of the tintypes loose, most bear some faults to the leaves while the images remain good overall.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
