A very rare print from a series Le Secq took in Trier, Germany close to the end of his photographic career.

Plant studies

Los 4063

Plant studies: "Cardobenedicten" (plate 44); "Odermennige" (plate 50) Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof. (1704 - 1763). 2 Naturselbstdrucke (nature prints) on thin laid paper. Each circa 34 x 20,5 cm. From the first edition of "Johannes Hieronymus Kniphof's Botanica Originali das ist Lebendig-Officinal-Kräuterbuch ... ", Erfurt, J.M. Funcke, 1733.

Johann Hieronymus Kniphof attended the Ratsgymnasium in Erfurt in 1719/22 and then studied in Jena and Erfurt. In 1737 he became professor of medicine, in 1747 dean of the medical faculty and in 1761 rector of the University of Erfurt. He held this office until his death.
Kniphof is mainly known as a botanist. He created a large herbarium which is considered a classic of nature self-printing. His plant prints attracted a lot of attention. Although Kniphof was not the inventor of this printing technique, he did continue to comprehensively develop it. His main work "Botanica in Originali Pharmaceutica", a "Living Officinal Herb Book", was published in 1733.
Still today little is known about the then new preparation and printing technique used by Kniphof, as he did not reveal any details about the process. It remains Kniphof's secret how, for example, he was able to print round objects such as cabbages, turnips and radishes from the original objects. – Paper time-stained, otherwise strong impressions with detailed, strong coloring and in good condition.

Robertson, James
Interior of the Redan, Sebastopol

Los 4070

Crimean War (1853 - 1856). Interior of the Redan, Sebastopol. 1855. Salt print on thin paper, unmounted. 25,5 x 29,8 cm.

The Battle of the Great Redan was a major battle during the Crimean War, fought between British forces against Russia from June 18 to September 8, 1855 as part of the Siege of Sevastopol. The French army successfully stormed the Malakoff entrenchment, whereas a simultaneous British attack on the Great Redan to the south of the Malakoff was averted. Contemporary commentators have suggested that, although the Redan became so important to the Victorians, it was probably not vital to the taking of Sevastopol. – Faded, slightly stronger fading in edges, light diagonal crease mark in upper area, otherwise a fine print with good contrasts.
