    Photographs were acquired predominantly from commercial vendors such as Fratelli Alinari (including the Anderson and Brogi archives), Foto Grassi, and Ditta Osvaldo Böhm. Also from Böhm are two dozen copy prints made from large glass negatives in the archive of 19th century photographer Carlo Naya, now owned by Böhm; images depict buildings and views in Padua and Verona. Also included are 1,199 copy prints acquired from the Courtauld Institute's Conway Library; these photos document sites and buildings in Siena, made during a photo campaign carried out in 1988.
