Bedford planned to publish and sell his Middle Eastern photographs in London after the tour. The photographs could be acquired as a complete set, purchased in a portfolio. The portfolios, organised by geographical region, would begin with a title page. Different photographs by Bedford were included within the decorative borders; this photograph shows the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Acquired by the Prince of Wales, 1862
