I bought this in a second hand bookshop for a few dollars, a lovely memento of photographic Pictorialism. It is a small portfolio of photographs from 1915, printed in Switzerland. Each print is tipped-in, on a sheet of fine paper. The loose prints are held in a folded flaps, and each print and its support are in different tones.
