Photographs : mounted albumens, reproducing drawings by Henry Durbec.

Photographer : Barthélémy.

Subject : Genitalia — Venereal diseases.

Notes :

The ten photographs illustrating Solari's work of popular medicine are all reproductions of water color drawings by Henry Durbec. Durbec's drawings were rendered as chromolithographs for the larger trade edition (vide: Solari, 1868 »»). Given the scarcity of the book – I know of only one copy sold by Librairie Chamonal in the 1960's – the photographic edition was probably a very limited, preproduction run.
