Following quote was lifted from an antiquarian bookseller's catalogue (Norman 34540, cat. 31.) and was written by Eder (History of Photography, p. 653.):

"[Vidal] was the first to produce color combination prints of chromolithographs with a brown pigment picture, especially he combined chromolithographs with a black Woodburytype printed last, which gave, owing to its transparency, excellent fine effects in reproductions"

Chief of dermatolgy at Hôpitaux Saint-Louis, Lailler also assumed the position of president of the Société Française de Dermatologie in 1891. He founded a charitable school, Ecole des enfants teigneux, for those children quarantined by tinea. A passionate book collector, the library he bequeathed to Saint-Louis numbered 1300 volumes.
