This object was acquired with a group of six other prints of the expedition which were erroneously attributed to O'Sullivan. This print lacks the mount and inscriptions found on the others in the lot, and is identified only by inscription on verso. See Christie's East, Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century Photographs, October 31, 1979, lot 76.
