J. Pascal Sebah (1872/1947) was a Turkish photographer living in Constantinople and a partner to Polycarpe Joailler (1848-1904) for a while. Their work is characteristic of the commercial workshops from 1880 to 1900. Their work was widely distributed and sold to travellers, and thus can be found in most of the albums that were made during this period. They show high-quality views of Turkey and Egypt.
Shipped with track & trace.
