This uncropped print was apparently made by Du Camp himself or one of his assistants, and is probably unique in this form. Unlike the less rare Du Camp prints by Blanquart Evrard or even those by Alfred LeNormand or Gustave Le Gray, these prints likely made by Du Camp's own hand are apparently unique proof copies. The color is considerably different than the other prints.Note the man posed for scale.See: Die Reise Zum Nil, (Museum Ludwig/Steidl, 1997), pl.18; Jacobson, Odalisques & Arabesques: Orientalist Photography 1839-1925, (Quaritch, London, 2007), pl.1; Aubenas and Lacarriere, Voyage en Orient, (Hazan/Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Paris, 1999), p.54; Les temps des Pionniers, (Centre National de la Photographie, Paris, 1987), pl.10; Etudes Photographiques, (SFP, Paris, Janvier 2004), No.14, p.132.
