About This Image

Printed title with information on the ram, including his place of origin (Transylvania). Probably food for Vampires. Tethered appropriate to a stake. With "Nadar jeune" stamp photo reversed out of photo. A rich print for this series. Commonly referred to as a varnished salt print, it is technically made by vernis-cuir, a process in which a paper is coated with layers of gelatin and tannin, giving it a thick high gloss like that of varnished leather. Tournachon often used the process and stamped these prints with his mark, "Nadar j[eu}ne."

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
