Catalogue Note

Third, expanded edition of the first french photographic atlas of dermatology. The work was first published in 14 parts between 1867 and 1868 under the title Clinique photographique de l’hôpital St-Louis with only 50 of Montméja’s photographs. Alfred Hardy (1811-1893), professor of pathology and doctor at the Hôpital St-Louis from 1851 to 1873, learnt in 1866 of the first attempts of dermatological photography from Alexander John Balmanno Squire in London. He charged one of his students, Montméja, with the photography. Montméja described how his black and white photographs were tinted by “des mains habiles… sous mes yeux, avec la sanction de M. Hardy”.
