Catalogue Note

These albums are believed to have belonged originally to the Luxembourg engineer Tony Dutreux (1838-1933), a graduate of L’Ecole Centrale Paris who later became a highly influential figure in the metals industry.  The present volumes were likely part of a larger set of albums recording Dutreux’s extensive travels in Europe, the Middle East, and the Orient; another album from his collection is owned by the National Library of Luxembourg.
