About This Image

Mounted, with photographer's red stamp at lower right. The image was taken in August 1858. Only four other copies of this image have been located, including the GEH and BN. They exhibit the same negative flaw that has been slightly retouched by Le Gray in this one, which probably accounts for its rarity. See: Buerger, The Era of the French Calotype, pl.36; Aubenas, et. al., Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884, pl.175, pp.146 and 370.

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.
