About This Item

1885. Very good overall. A Sydney Botanic Garden image by Charles Bayliss, with a large albumen panorama of Coogee Bay from the rocks, ("Coogee Bay 162"), laid down on a sheet with an image of Philae Island, Egypt. The Botanic Garden image by Bayliss depicts large tree ferns in the foreground, with diagonal paths leading towards the conservatory in the distance. "C. Bayliss, photo, Sydney", photographer's blind stamp, at the lower left corner; titled in period ink below the print. Trove 42542536 at the National Library of Australia. 7 7/8 x 6 1/8". Small chip at upper right corner. The Coogee Bay photograph is a dramatic view of the rocks of the Gap, from the top of the ocean cliff on South Head. A blind stamp is at the right edge with the papermaker's imprint. 11 x 8 1/2. Slightly chipped at lower corners. Not found in Trove. The Philae Island image depicts the ruins of the Temple of Isis in Aswan, Egypt, taken from within the temple and showing the distinctive columns with tops shaped like papyrus flowers and with Hathor heads above. Although unidentified, possibly by Antonio Beato. (Trove locates 2 images of the Temple of Isis by Beato: 25161670 and 25161661). 7 x 4 1/2"
