Two large-format albums of albumen prints by John Edward Sach� and others, c. 1870, 230 albumen prints mounted rectos only to thick card leaves, comprising 162 full-size images measuring approximately 29 x 23.5 cm, the majority of these signed in the negative by Sach� with his catalogue number, 10 linen-backed folding panoramas in 2, 3 and 4 parts, the remaining 58 prints in various sizes and orientations, most mounted landscape and measuring 16 x 20 cmm, others measuring up to 27 x 18.5 cm, nearly all photographs captioned in the mounts, linen hinges, gilt edges, armorial bookplate to front pastedowns signed 'J. W. S. Mackenzie', prints variably toned as usual, mounts foxed, a few of the panoramas creased, bound in matching contemporary maroon half morocco, 'Photographic views of India' gilt-stamped to front boards, front boards and spines detached from album blocks but intact, rubbed and worn overall, water-damage to boards of volume 2, large folio Sach�'s large-format photographs are generally arranged to include extensive runs of between ten and twenty views of cities and regions including Calcutta, Lucknow, Agra (including the Taj Mahal), Fatehpur Sikri, Bombay, Ootacamund, Kashmir, Nainatal, Simla, Bombay, and elsewhere. Many of the smaller photographs are similar in composition and content and are possibly also by Sach�; the final 40 or so photographs in the second album are apparently from a variety of sources and seem intended to depict the homeward journey of the compiler, probably a soldier in the 105th Regiment of Foot (Madras Light Infantry). They include 15 photographs of Aden and Al Houta (of which five are folding panoramas) and several images of the Suez Canal at Port Said and Suez, including the house of Ferdiand de Lesseps. (2)
