The Middle East in Early Prints and Photographs

The New York Public Library has plenty of material on the Middle East, and in fact, they have created this very fine digital collection which brings together early prints and photographs of the region. With over 8800 items online, the collection contains engravings, lithographs, and salt prints, along with a number of complete photograph albums and archival compilations. Visitors can perform a general search of these materials, and they may also wish to read the background essay offered here as well. Clicking on the "Collection Contents" section will bring up a list of the works that make up the digital collection, which include Francis Frith's 1862 work, "Upper Egypt and Ethiopia" and an ordnance survey executed by Colonel Sir Henry James in 1865.
