Rare Photographs Books Rare & Antiquarian Books

There are many books that come complete with beautiful illustrations and original photographs. The mere presence of photographs in rare and antique books increases the value of the item exponentially, and even more so if the photographs are well preserved. While there are many deluxe and special editions of books that include photographs, many of the photographs featured here are separate photographic portraits of authors, celebrities, and other historical figures. From photos of presidents to books of photographed nudes, there is quite the diversity of subjects in the photographs, with some photographs dating back to the Civil War.
