The number "593" in white ink appears on recto in what may be the hand of Antoin Sevruguin.
This image also appears in colour in “Autour du monde, aquarelles, souvenirs de voyages XL, En Perse. Types, costumes et Moeurs” published by L Boulanger, Paris, c1890 and is titled “Persane Dans Le Harem” (CCCXVI). The photogravure is from a set of eight Persian images by Antoin Sevruguin and was printed by Charles Gillot (1853-1903), a Paris based engraver and art collector who incorporated the photographic discoveries of Daguerre and Niepce into his engraving techniques and ultimately perfected a process for reproducing book illustrations in colour. The image also has the number “593” in white ink on recto in the same location as the albumen print in the Nelson collection.
