12 14 Vignes, Louis, View from Mar Saba, 1864
Two-part joined panorama, albumen. The photographer and the date are determined by Vignes's trip to the Holy Land with the Duc de Luynes in 1864. In 1875 some of his photos were published as photogravures by Charles Nègre in Honoré Paul Joseph d'Albert, Duc de Luynes, Voyage d´exploration à la mer Morte, à Petra, et sur la rive gauche du Jourdain. Vignes was known before this trip by photographs of Morocco, Sicily, Lebanon, and Palestine dating from 1859 to 1864. A number of marks in pencil on the recto of the print indicate further treatment, especially to create clouds on the photogravure. Mar Saba is a monastery near Bethlehem. H 194.

2 3 Hakodate Harbor, Yeso Island, circa 1863-1875
Three-part panorama, albumen. Title written in pencil on verso. Date from Bonnemaison. Attributed to Felice Beato by Bonnemaison, but according to Anne Lacoste, the Beato attribution is doubtful: none of Beato's other photographs are from this part of Japan and there is a different tone to the prints. Yeso island is now Hakkaido. A 46. Former box number: 7*.
2 4 Garden at Okayama, Bizen, after 1880
Two-part panorama, colored albumen. Title on recto. Dated by Bonnemaison, who also identifies the photographer as Felice Beato. Anne Lacoste feels this attribution is very unlikely due to the title appearing in the negative and the type of coloring. The photograph could be the work of a local photographer. I 211. Former box number: 1.
