Biographical / Historical:
Born in Italy in 1841, Farsari moved to Yokohama from the United States in 1877 as a tobacco merchant, but soon delved into the art of photography. In 1885, Farsari purchased the Japan Photographic Association studio and stock from Baron von Stillfried. While a fire destroyed the entire stock, it was quickly reproduced within a matter of months, and Farsari moved his studio to where the Yokohama Photographic Company was located. A. Farsari and Co. would eventually become one of Japan's largest photography studios, with over thirty-one Japanese artists. Farsari eventually returned to Italy in 1890.

Title taken from label affixed to bottom center of mount.
This album, with covers of lacquer and ivory, was produced by a shop which used photographs by Beato, Von Stillfried, Kimbei, and others, without including their descriptions or numbers. Each photograph is described by a label affixed below the print. The work is almost certainly by A. Farsari, who owned the stock of all of these photographs in the 1880s. Kimbei kept some stock he had purchased from Von Stillfried in his own shop. Confusion and uncertainty regarding attribution of 19th century Japanese photography is well-discussed in published material.

Full title, "Drink McLaughlin's XXXX Coffee. Japanese Carriers. Photographed from life."
This print forms part of an advertisement for McLaughlin's XXXX Coffee, with advertisement and text on verso.
Note on verso reads: Two Important Questions Answered. 1st. Why is Mclaughlin's XXXX COFFEE Glazed? 2nd. What is Glazing composed of? Coffee being a vegetable, consequently pourous, the glazing seals the pores and keeps the Coffee for months as fresh as the day it comes from the roaster. THIS IS WHY IT IS GLAZED. The glazing is made from Corn Starch and Reclarified Sugar, nothing can be more nutritous and healthful. We account for the immense increase in our business to having our own houses in Rio de Janeiro and Santos, saving the intermediate or secone-hand profit, and putting all this saving in the quality of our Coffee. W.F. McLAUGHLIN & CO., Chicago. Rio de Janeiro. Santos. A Beautiful Picture card in Every Package. 16 Designs in this Set. (over.)
