Early albums (downloads)

Here you can find a list of 19th and early 20th Century photographic albums that can be viewed and sometimes even downloaded in its entirety. Many of them are almost impossible to obtain.
Notice: most of these books are not in my collection and you will be directed to another website than Africa in the Photobook.
