Le Grainage dans Les Cévennes Lackerbauer, Pierre  (French, 1823-1872)

Lackerbauer was a brilliant lithographic artist and photographer who applied his mastery in both techniques to learn photo-lithography which he demonstrated at the 1867 Paris exposition. Fourteen of the prints for this book are early examples of photo-lithography and were made on lithograph presses using the same type of limestone block that is used for reproducing artist drawings. Lackerbauer is remembered for the exquisite drawings he prepared for Lebert’s atlas Traité d’Anatomie Pathologique générale et spéciale ( Paris: J.B. Baillière et Fils, 1857-61). http://www.artandmedicine.com/biblio/authors/Pasteur.html
