Handsomely illustrated with sepia reproductions of the people and topography of Iraq; with printed captions, in English, below each image. This album of 73 photographs of Iraq from the early twentieth century was published by the Hasso Brothers in Baghdad and printed by Rotophot A.G. in Berlin. The photographs have been attributed to A. Kerim. Incl. also some images of an ethnographic nature. The text is of a sometimes questionable, Orientalist-slanted terminology.
