Saugrin was an important early French photographer, who worked in daguerreotype, stereos and other media. He exhibited daguerreotypes at the SFP in the 1850s and stereos in 1864. The photograph comes from an album of what may be Saugrin's own home and estate. These fine landscape images (with some people for scale) appear to be from the 1850s or early 1860s. Most of the images appear to be experiments in toning techniques. Often the same image is produced in vastly different tones ranging from deep purple to a yellowish cast. Large format prints by Saugrin are virtually unknown.
Most U.S. domestic Fed Ex ground shipping (Media Mail for books) is free of charge except for larger and heavier items, or unless the buyer wants express shipping (email us your requests for the latter). International 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 local customs duties and taxes, which will be charged by Fed Ex, which will contact the client prior to delivery.
