About This Image
"Photogravure sur Acier par Ch. Negre" stamped on recto margin. From Duc de Luynes, Voyage d'Exploration a la Mer Morte, 1871-1874. Vignes accompanied the Duc de Luynes an archaeologist, numismatist and art collector on a trip to Lebanon and Palestine in 1864, despite of or because of his passionate amateur status as a photographer. He took calotypes to record key places. Charles Nègre printed them with his newly discovered heliogravure process.
