Christopher Wahren Fine Photographs
A hand-colored photo-composite of eight Japanese images and wood-grained box, mounted as cover on a folding octagonal "Price List of the [...] Yamabe Photo Co. / No. 12, Bund, Yokohama."
The text of price list is entirely in English, indicating that it was probably directed at visiting foreigners: "Price List of the Leading Photographers / The Yamabe Photo Co., No. 12, Bund, Yokohama / Only Strictly First Class Work Done at Our Gallery / We are the only firm making Bas Reliefs, Iridiums & Carbonettes in Japan." The interior offers "Prices of Portraits" in Cabinet, Cartes de Visite, "Paris Panels" and "10x12" format, as well as "Views...", colored and uncolored, and "Albums, Album Covers in Cherry Lacquer, Frames &c., in great Variety."
