About This Image

A road through the oak trees. A very good image and a nice print. Excellent value. From the Rare 1858 "Le Bois de Boulogne" Series. Transitional albumen print. There were also later prints made of this series in the late 1860s. The images from this series are extremely rare and are found primarily in French institutions, notably the Bibliotheque Historique de la Ville de Paris (for negatives) and the Bibliotheque Nationale and Musee Carnavalet. In most cases, no more than four or five prints are known to exist.

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). International shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their local customs duties and taxes, which will be charged by Fed Ex, which will contact the client prior to delivery.
