Early photography catalog of Fratelli Alinari the world’s oldest photographic firm.

The Fratelli Alinari, founded in Florence, Italy in 1852, is the oldest company in the world in the field of photography and communication through images. Started as a small photographic studio, soon turned into a workshop dedicated to the documentation of notable Italian paintings, sculptures, and architecture, later on, the scope expanded to include towns and landscapes of Italy. This early catalog of 1865, the second of its kind (first in 1863) offers already a large selection of art reproductions and Italian city views and landscapes in various formats.

Scarce, WorldCat locates only two copies in institutions (NAL, London; Getty Research Institute, LA).
