A canoe by a tree-line field. Nice image, exposure a tad light. Transitional albumen print. There were also later prints made of this series in the late 1860s. From the Rare 1858 "Le Bois de Boulogne" Series. The images from this series are extremely rare and are found primarily in French institutions, notably the Bibliotheque Historique de la Ville de Paris (for negatives) and the Bibliotheque Nationale and Musee Carnavalet. In most cases, no more than four or five prints are known to exist. See: Travis, Paris Photographs from a Time That Was (Art institute and Yale University Press, 2005), p.28.
