Comprises 23 photo portraits inserted front and back into 12 thick card leaves each printed with gilt arched frames, and bound in dark green morocco handsomely decorated in gilt and blind, the card leaves with all edges gilt, the binding with double brass clasps. In excellent condition. <> A series of single-figure studio portraits by John Smith Lonsdale, who advertises himself here as : Artist & Photographer, 100 Fleet Street, London E.C. Lonsdale was born in Scotland in 1829, and seems to have worked only briefly as a photographer : from 1863 - 1864 in his Fleet Street studio, and from 1864 - 1869 at 54 Chancery Lane. He also had a brief career as a portrait painter 1866 - 1867. Lonsdale died at St Pancras in London in 1897. Photographs by Lonsdale appear to be scarce : the Victoria & Albert Museum locates only one, an 1860s portrait of Alice Marriott, the celebrated actress-manager of Sadlers Wells best-known for her role as Hamlet.
