These glass side photos were part of an unrealized book project about the old Tasmania. Some slides have scratches or photographic errors, and the colour shown differs from the original photos. The paper background isn't brownish but black. In general, however, the condition is acceptable and commensurate with its age. The slides are in the original softbox. But the cover is missing.

by Josiah Martin (1843–1916).

Josiah was a New Zealand teacher and photographer. In 1879, he travelled to London and was introduced to rapid 'instantaneous' photography at the Royal College of Chemistry. Once he returned to New Zealand, he opened a studio in Auckland. Martin became well known for his topographical and ethnological photographs. He often presented these at the Auckland Photographic Club. Martin's work was also published in the Auckland Weekly News, New Zealand Illustrated and exhibited photographs at the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford.
