About This Image

Written on the paper covering back of plate is the number 303 and the artist's monogram in red ink.

Duboscq was one of the first to be entranced by the lenticular stereoscope when Brewster introduced it to France in 1850. Janet Buerger quotes Brewster in THE STEREOSCOPE: "Duboscq immediately began to make the lenticular stereoscope for sale, and executed a series of the most beautiful binocular daguerreotypes of living individuals, statues, bouquets of flowers and objects of natural history... ."

See "The French Daguerreotype", Janet Buerger, pp. 101-109 and pp. 214-215, where she notes that Duboscq's work is rare today, with most known examples in the George Eastman House Collection.
