Title: Cabinet Cards of Paris Scenes
Publisher: Quinet, Achille (n.d. but 1870s?), (N.-pl. but Paris)
Publication Date: 1870
Book Condition: Fine
A set of 26 cabinet cards measuring 6-3/8 by 4-1/4 (16.2 by 10.8 cm), with images slightly smaller. The albumen photographs depict architectural scenes in Paris and the surrounding areas. Quinet (1831-1900) was a photographer and inventor--he patented the Quinetoscope, the first twin-lens stereoview camera, and he developed the first vertical photograph enlarger. In his nature studies, Quinet showed a strong affinity with the Impressionist painters, and several of these architectural studies show interesting plays of light and shadow. The only Quinet, for example, in the online catalog of the Museum of Modern Art (purchased in 1983) is Cascades de St. Cloud, an image present in this collection. The images, most titled in the negative and a few on the mount, include Place de la Concorde; Chateau de Fontainebleau; Palais des Tuileries; Notre-Dame; Tour St. Jaques; Eglise de la Trinite; and others. One image has small areas of loss; the rest are fine or nearly so. Bookseller Inventory # 25152
