Title and information in pencil on recto of mount: "Vue de Temple de Philoe prife par derrière, matin (Nubie)". This is the Grand Temple of Isis at Philoe, Egypt, taken from the rear and in the morning, according to the inscription.
This print was apparently made by Du Camp himself and the inscription was made by Du Camp or one of his assistants. Unlike the less rare Du Camp prints by Blanquart Evrard or even those by Alfred LeNormand or Gustave Le Gray, these prints likely made by Du Camp's own hand are apparently unique proof copies. The color is considerably different than the other prints. The image was made on April 13, 1850.
