Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Guardian newspaper reported that Bonhams New York was to sell an albumen photograph of the Rossetti Family at home (detail, right), dated 1863. The catalogue entry noted ' No similar quality original Lewis Carroll photograph of the Rossetti family has sold on the open market in recent years. Of the three known complete images of this photograph, only this and one other exist in private hands.' The photograph was offered in New York with an estimate of US$ 50,000 - 70,000 (£38,000 - 53,000). It failed to find a buyer.
