Notes: Marcantonio Raimondi or sometimes just Marc-Antoine, born about 1480 in Sant'Andrea near Bologna and died around 1534, was an Italian goldsmith and engraver, known to be the first engraver of reproductions.

 

Benjamin Delessert was a member of an influential French family of bankers, politicians, civil servants and philanthropists. He studied photography with Gustave Le Gray, exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in 1855 and was a founding member of the Societe Francaise de Photographie. He selected the best Raimondi prints he could find in public and private collections, photographed them and contributed an essay. His scientific ambitions manifested itself in the size of the photographs, which replicated the size of the originals.
