Naples, Pompeii (including museum exhibits), Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Sicily




Many of the early views are hard to grade and have the strange white spotting that seems to pervade early Italian views and those of photographers such as Braun and Tairrez. Also they do not scan very well and are generally much better than they appear on the screen. Most of the early views, where unmarked, are by G. Sommer.
