Printed information below each of the twelve individual prints that indicates the Berthier was the photographer using a Poitevin Process under the direction of T. Deveria. The Photolithographs were made by Lemercier (rue de Seine, Paris). Titles, plate and series numbers, and dynasty information is also included. The publication is very rare, and even individual plates are rarely available outside of institutions, although it originally was published apparently with either 86 or 110 plates with 30 photolitho plates out of that number. Various sources give different number of plates and date range when published (1857-1860 is another alternative date range). An extremely important archeological document. Some light foxing to borders but plates themselves are clean. For additional images contact dealer.
