Footnotes

  • SCARCE. Vignes took part in two expeditions to the Middle East, the first in 1860 from where this particular photograph was taken and the second in 1864 under the patronage of the Duke of Luynes (1802 – 1867). He had used the calotype process and had taken fifty-two plates from his journey between June 1859 and October 1862 in Marocco, Sicily, Beyrouth and the Lebanon. The images taken during his first expedition enabled Vignes to present his collection to the Duke of Luynes and thereby assure his place under the Duke's own expedition to Beyrouth and Palmyra, passing by Djerach, in 1864.
