Three original photographs: the Sultan of Lahej, the Sultan with his family, the Sultan's palace
c. 1877]. Original albumen photographs, mounted on sheets of card or paper (the images measuring 62 by 104mm, 226 by 187mm and 228 by 169mm). Slight fading to the image of the Sultan's family, all images generally very good. Ms. titles in ink to mounts of the family and palace photographs. [No date, but A set of photographs focusing on al-Fadl III ibn 'Ali al-'Abdali, who was the Sultan of Lahej for two periods; briefly in 1863 and for a longer spell starting in July 1874 and ending in April 1898. A small carte-de-visite shows the Sultan sitting alone looking directly into the camera. A larger print captures him with his family, seated outside between two palms; all are in fine clothes and with swords at hip or to hand. The final image sets his palace against a blank sky, rising far above the other low-lying buildings and fences.
