William Carrick is considered an important chronicler of Russian life in the 19th century; his photographs are rare early documents and highly sought after by collectors. Carrick photographed not only in numerous cities, but also in the Russian and Moravian provinces. The present photographs include depictions of peasants, architectures and landscapes, including shots from Moscow, Sevastopol and Nizhny Novgorod. They are accompanied by a legend in English, possibly authored by Carrick himself.

The cardboards are (in part irregularly) discolored, showing foxing and light-staining, some fingerprints, small creases and blemishes to the margins. The cardboard shows wear marks.
