12263990068?profile=RESIZE_400xThis excellent, well-illustrated monograph examines in detail the career of Francois (a.k.a. Philibert) Perraud, a French daguerreotypist who travelled through Italy and Greece in the 1840s, leaving behind a still-to-be-uncovered wealth of material which still occasionally surfaces. His best known images of Greek monuments now reside with the J. P. Getty Museum, Los Angeles, but this fine monograph reveals the scope of his career and marks him out as a genuine pioneer. The original research of exceptional interest is by the author, Roberto Caccialanza. There is an excellent 15-page English abstract, though the text is in Italian.
