|An albumen print showing a bare-chested Hawaiian man with four Hawaiian women. An inscription pencilled in a period hand in the lower margin reads 'Hawaii / 4 wives.'
The print measures 5.4" by 8" (139 mm by 202 mm) and is mounted on a cut-down section of album page. The reverse of the album page once carried another print but this has been neatly skimmed off.
condition: The print presents one small abrasion and one spot of foxing in the area of the background, and its tones drop off very slightly at two of its edges. It is otherwise in excellent condition, with good
tonal range. The mount presents a couple of small stains in the margins and it has warped very slightly in the area of the lower margin and the lower edge of the print, which you can feel if you run your finger
across the warped area.
