Container List

Series I Desbonnet collection, 1889-1906, undated 76.0 items
The series contains 76 items that originally formed part of Edmond Desbonnet's Collection athlétique. The portraits in this series were made by a wide vareity of photographers, mostly European, although a few were taken by American photographers. None of the portraits present here are known to have been taken by Desbonnet himself. The sitters are European men and women who performed as gymnasts, acrobats, dancers, contortionists, equestrian acts, jugglers, trapeze artists, acrobatic cyclists, clowns and singers.
All of the mounts are wet stamped on their versos with Desbonnet's collection stamp bearing the following text: Collection athlétique / du / Professeur Desbonnet / Paris / 48, Faubourg Poissonniere. Some of the images included in Series III. Other entertainers and personalities, that lack explicit dedications could possibly also have been part of the Desbonnet collection.

Series III. Other entertainers and personalities, 1870-1951, undated 288.0 items
Series III comprises 287 portraits that cannot be definitively assigned to either the Desbonnet or Teller collections due to their lack of explicit dedications or collector's stamps, although some of the images included in the series could have originally been part of either collection. Overall, the items in this series would seem to have been collected piecemeal by the unknown collector. Also included is one circus-related pamphlet entitled The Call of the Calliope.
The series comprises relatively equal numbers of portraits of American and European performers taken by a proportionate number of American and European photographers. The American performers are primarily dramatic artists, comedians and singers while the European performers are more varied in their specialties, which are of a broader gymnastic or athletic nature.
Arrangement note
Arranged in three subseries: III.A Portraits of women; III.B Portraits of men; and III.C Group portraits.
