From “L'Épreuve Photographique: Première Série: 1904” with interleaving tissue with printed credit, title and plate number.

Between 1904-1905, one of the most luxurious subscription photographic plate publications in France or Europe was L’Épreuve Photographique. (The Photographic Print) Published in Paris, and not satisfied with identifying itself as a mere photographic journal, it billed itself as a “monthly portfolio of luxury” instead. (Portfolio périodique de grand luxe) Over the course of two years, prize-winning salon photographs from French and European pictorialist circles were selected for inclusion in this oversized publication (44 x 32 cm) as hand-pulled, copper plate (taille-douce) screen photogravures (héliogravures) from the Paris atelier of Charles Wittmann.
