A collection of circa 1880s original photographs of Paris in the cabinet card format. Each photo shows an historic building, monument, street view or attraction and is neatly titled on the back on the back by hand although 4 cards have printed titles. Probably collected during someone's grand tour, these cabinet cards are all in excellent to near mint condition with no flaws or damage to the images, just minor edge wear to some of the cards. Overall, a very fine set of 45 different views. These predate picture postcards and capture these scenes as they were over 100 years ago. The photographs themselves are sharp and highly detailed albumen prints done by professional photographers. Although most are unsigned, 4 bear photographers imprints or stamps. The cabinet cards measure 6.5" by 4.25". I've listed Priority Mail International for overseas shipment so that insurance can be obtained. They can be sent via 1st Class International if the buyer is willing to assume all risk.
