Illustrations and brief extracts from Rome, with text by M.A.R. Tuker and Hope Malleson and paintings by Alberto Pisa, Macmillan, London, 1905.
A note at the end of the list of illustrations says The Illustrations in this volume have been engraved by the Hentschel Colourtype Process.
Alberto Pisa lived from 1864 to 1936, and, since he died more than 70 years ago, the pictures are out of copyright.

I did not find dates for Hope Malleson, although her mother, Elizabeth Malleson, was born in 1828 and died in 1916.
