Description

Pierre Tremaux was a French architect, photographer, traveler and writer of scientific and ethnographic texts. Beginning in 1847 he recorded his expeditions to Asia Minor, Egypt, Libya and Tunisia first in sketches and daguerreotypes and then in calotypes for greater veracity, all of which were also reproduced as lithographs in his publications.

Originally issued in parts to accompany the author's Voyage en ethiopie, au Soudan oriental et dans la Nigritie. Paris : L. Hachette, 1862-[1863]

The atlas volume depicting landscapes, architecture and people of North Africa, contains 57 plates of illustrations (49 lithographs and eight calotypes) and four maps made during Tremaux's second expedition.

Lithographers include: Laurens; Tirpenne; Didiere; V. Adam; A. Adam; Pinque; Decon; Gaildrau and E. David. Printers of plates include Godard and Lemercier

The illustrations are numbered 1 through 56; number 55 is present both as a calotype and as a lithograph. A man leading a donkey laden with firewood has been added to the foreground of the lithograph (Plates 36, 38, 44, 46, 47, 50, 52 and 55 are calotypes and depict both portraits and landscapes)

Half calf binding with gilt tooled spine and marbled paper covers
