The number "537" is reversed out of the negative at the bottom right in Le Gray's hand. A very rare and important untrimmed print from Le Gray's summer 1851 expedition for the Mission Heliographique. Most such prints are in institutions. Very few are in private hands. There is a small missing piece at the far left middle of the print that has been restored. See: Anne de Mondenard, La Mission Heliographique, cat. no.53, p. 241. Provenance: Family of the photographer, Henry Le Secq.Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer.
