STUDY OF A MAN JUMPING
chronophotograph, glass-plate positive, dated '18 Juillet 86' in the negative, likely by Georges Demeny, passe-partout, with the old, possibly original, blue paper edging, 1886
Image 1⅜ by 2¼ in. (3.5 by 5.7 cm.)
Plate 3⅛ by 3⅛ in. (7.9 by 7.9 cm.)
The image appears to be in generally excellent condition. The edges of the slide are taped with what is likely the original blue paper tape. The tape is somewhat soiled.
When viewing the slide in reverse, there is a crack to the glass at the upper right corner. There is a white, partially removed label with an annotation in ink on the reverse.
