notes

a rare work, containing early photographs and photo-lithographed views of asia minor.

Pierre Trémaux (1818-1895) was an architect, traveller and explorer whose place in the history of photography was assured on the basis of the present survey. He was a graduate of the Institut de France and a laureate of the Société de Géographie. Trémaux spent seven years, from 1847 to 1854 in North Africa and the Near East, where he produced calotypes for a projected 'Atlas of picturesque views, scenes, manners and customs'. The work, issued in parts, was intended to be a monumental production with a total of 355 photographs in three series. The publication was technically uneven, however, so Trémaux began to substitute photo-lithographs for fading salt prints and it appears that these unsatisfactory results brought a premature end to the ambitious project. The series nonetheles includes uncommon images which have ensured the photographer's lasting reputation. The only other set of this work we have traced at auction is the Jammes copy, sold with Trémaux's Voyage au Soudan et dans l'Afrique, Septentrionale', (Jammes sale, Sotheby's, 27 October 1999, lot 150). A full list of the plates in this copy is available on request.
