Honolulu, T.H. A.R. Gurrey, Jr., [circa 1910].
Unbound. Photograph of a Hawaiian beach scene by Gurrey. Silver gelatin print. Measuring 3.25" x 5.5". Gurrey's small embossed stamp on the edge of the image. Small chip in one corner, not affecting image, possibly detached from an album. Near fine. A beautiful Hawaiian image with palm trees in the foreground overlooking the beach and the sea. A.R. Gurrey was a photographer and surfer. His 1914 book *The Surf Riders of Hawaii* is considered the first important book on the subject. That work consisted of only six leaves that contained seven of his silver gelatin photographs, some quite small, with minimal text. A copy of the book sold in 2011 at auction for $37,500. Original Gurrey images with his embossed stamp are uncommon.
