Gift of glass negatives and black and white unmounted photographs of medieval manuscripts in the Bibliotheque National, Paris. Rich, but not comprehensive, coverage. Assortment of full page illustrations and details, some duplicates. Known as the Tuefferd-Servant gift, acquired through Sumner McKnight Crosby.
Collection consists of black & white or sepia photographs, 10 x 14 in. or smaller, of Classical sculpture, architecture, and sites. These photographs were removed from the collection because of questionable worth or fragility. Most of the photographs are mounted, but folders of unmounted photographs are also included. Most of the photographs have been identified, and are marked on the backs. This identification was done recently. Some information is on Post-It notes attached to the photograph. The views of archaeological sites usually contain groups of archaeologists, visitors or local guides, and would date the photos to the end of the 19th century. Some of the photographs, particularly those of sculpture, are standard views from photo archives, but many are original photos and provide views of sites that are no longer available.
