VIII.7.28 Pompeii. Old undated photograph, possibly c.1875 to early 1880s. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer.
The man in front is holding a book, a copy of the Scafati Guide to Pompeii.  
Looking at the higher resolution original photo, the cover of the booklet has an image of the first cast that Fiorelli made in 1863.
It also has a curved top line of type above the word Pompei and has no binding on the spine.
These would date the booklet to the original editions which first came out in 1875.  
Based on a comparison with copies of the Scafati guide which Rick has in his private collection, the cover in the photo matches the first edition of the guide book.  
As such, he estimates the photo was taken sometime from 1875 to early 1880s.
