Album containing 48 mounted albumen prints.
An official album of 48 mounted photographs describing the famous veterinary school at Grignon. It opens with a photo of a plan of the parish or township in 1848, followed by 3 views of buildings: the chateau, the house of the director and the sheepfold. There are then views of various farming equipment, farm animals (some with their handlers), bee hives, and various species of trees. Each photograph is identified with a manuscript caption done in very careful calligraphy; gilt-printed title on cover. This school is still extant; it is now called the National Agronomic Institute of France (Grignon); also the National School of Veterinary Services.
Cover measures: 10.75 x 13.75 inches. Prints average 5 x 7 inches. Each albumen print is mounted within a tinted lithograph background. Most photos have a light spotting, apparently from some spots on the negatives - not offensive.
