    Spanning roughly one hundred years, the Pierre de Gigord Collection of Photographs, with over 6,000 photographic images, forms a visual record of the late years of the Ottoman Empire and the formation and early years of the Republic of Turkey. The collection focuses on cultural and urban images, mainly of Constantinople (Istanbul), the capital of the Ottoman Empire, but other geographic areas, such as the Balkans, and other cities and towns within the empire such as Bursa and Smyrna (Izmir) are included, as are a few images from sites in Greece, Egypt, Jerusalem, India and China. The work of over 165 photographers is represented in the collection. The collection is supported by a small group of pamphlets and offprints regarding photography in the Ottoman Empire and by a small assemblage of photographic ephemera.
    Series III contains loose and mounted photographs. Some of the mounted prints are on disbound album pages. The lots in Series III most closely reflect Gigord's method of collecting by theme, and the titles for the lots have been devised to reflect the preponderance of subject matter within each lot. Photographs are grouped loosely by geographic location, site, monument or type of monument, people (including lots comprised of men, women, portraits, types, ethnic groups, occupations and daily life) or by photographer. Also included are large format prints and small single-image panoramic views.
