About This Image

Note the second man, barely visible and perhaps the owner, in the background at the left.With "Nadar jeune" stamp photo and negative number reversed out of photo, and a title in ink on the recto of the mount in German (Cow of the Race in Normandy). A very rich print. Commonly referred to as a varnished salt print, it is technically made by vernis-cuir, a process in which a paper is coated with layers of gelatin and tannin, giving it a thick high gloss like that of varnished leather. Tournachon often used the process and stamped these prints with his mark, "Nadar j[eu}ne."

Most U.S. domestic Fed Ex ground shipping (Media Mail for books) is free of charge except for larger and heavier items, or unless the buyer wants express shipping (email us your requests for the latter).
