[Religion & Photography] "The Books By Which All Ages Will Be Judged" Albumen Photograph
n.p. [circa 1870]. Mounted Photograph. An intriguing image of a bearded gentleman pointing with a walking cane to a painted banner "The Books By Which All Ages Will Be Judged" - it showing four volumes opened to their centers, giving the dates of various Biblical events thus "Vol. I From The Creation to The Flood 1624 Years" / "Vol. II From The Flood to The Passover 857 Years" / "Vol. III From The Passover to The Cross 1519 Years" / "Vol. IV From The Cross to The Judgment" (no dateline given, but the dates from the first 3 books total 4,000 years). The photo measures 4 x 5.5 inches wide and is mounted onto a card measuring 4.5 x 6.75 inches wide. There is some soil, a few tiny chips and loss of contrast, verso unmarked. Very Good. Item #4417
The name of the gentleman in the photo would appear to "Eld Sterling" which is written in pencil directly above him. "Eld" can be short for "Elder" (one who has a deep connection with God) or "Eldar" (one who is born to fight with fire), according to a baby naming website.
