A view of Chamonix with Mont Blanc in the background. Plate 17 of 'La Suisse et la Savoie par Eugène Ciceri d'après les vues photographiées par Martens, photographe de S.M. l'Empereur' (1859-65), which recorded 'numerous locations still unknown or little known in topographical illustration' (Gattlen). In 1844 Frédéric Martens (1809-75) had been sent to Chamonix by the French government to experiment with photography in extreme conditions, producing some of the first photographs of the high alps. In the early 1850s he exhibited panoramic views in London and Paris, fuelling interest in the scenery of the region, so returned for this series. As his medium, daguerreotype, prevented easy reproduction, his images had to be lithographed (by Étienne Eugène Cicéri) for publication.
