BEATO, FELICE. Album containing 24 mounted albumen print photographs, 7 1/4 x 9 1/4 inches, [1860s], with mounted printed captions below, in later silk covered album, generally excellent.

Includes views throughout the Japanese countryside including in Omi, Saikio, Yamashiro, Maruyama, Settsu, Kobe. Beato moved to Yokohama, Japan in 1863 and for the next 5 years maintained in partnership with Charles Wirgman one of the earliest and most important commercial studios in Japan. Beato was able to travel the countryside at a time when the Shogunate had restricted foreign access to the country by accompanying ambassadorial delegations and by taking advantage of his popularity and close relationship with the British military.
