This book is a rare example of early 20th century scenic photographs of Iraq. Camera Studies in Iraq also had a farily limited print run. This photo album is an apparent mock-antique album from the 1920's with an attempt to darken and spot the pages to appear older. The front cover reads in gold lettering, "Camera Studies in Iraq" with the photographer and publisher listed at the bottom: "A. Kerim/Bagdad," and "Hasso Bros./Baghdad."
