        A vintage full-plate albumen paper photograph (160 × 207 mm) of a large group of Narrinyeri at Point McLeay, Lake Alexandrina, South Australia [late 1870s]

      Unmounted as issued; in fine condition. The frontispiece of George Taplin's 'The Folklore, Manners, Customs, and Languages of the South Australian Aborigines' (1879) is a mounted original photograph captioned 'A Camp of the Narrinyeri, Lake Alexandrina'; it is a familiar view, not least because of its publication in this book. The photograph offered here is very rare by comparison, yet it would appear to have been taken only a little further along the shoreline of the lake, probably on the same occasion. Captain Samuel White Sweet (1825-1886), sea captain, surveyor and photographer: after he was censured when his ship ran aground in 1875, he 'retired from the sea, opened a photographic studio in Adelaide and concentrated on landscapes. With his horse-drawn dark room he travelled through South Australia taking hundreds of skilful pictures of the outback, stations and homesteads. The colony's foremost documentary photographer of the 1870s, in the early 1880s he was one of the first to use the new dry-plate process' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography').

      (Paris), 1879. Folio (52 x 40 cm). In contemporary full cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front board. 10 large (28 x 22 cm) and 2 smaller (10 x 10 cm) original photos depicting mobile searchlight, all mounted on grey cardboard. 10 full page and 5 double page techincal diagrams, all mounted on grey cardboard. Title-page lacking upper and lower left corner. Title-page with traces after having been folded. 4 leaves with tears to the grey cardboard, only affecting one diagram. Photos and diagrams fine and clean. 30 ff. ¶ Exceedingly rare commercial catalogue, constituting one of the very earliest works on the military application of the electric light and electricity in general, by manufacture and distributor L. Sautter, Lemonnier & Cie primarily known for their work in lenses for lighthouses (Constructeurs de Phares lenticuleurs et de Machines de Gramme). The present publication predates the famous 1884 Geneva conference, in which the use of electric light for military use was formally endorsed, by five years. World War I was the first major war to "benefit" from technological advances in electrical power.The first searchlight with an optical lens made by Louis Sautter had illuminated the Champs-Elysées in honor of Napoléon III in 1867. It lit the whole upper terrace of the Arch de Triomphe and by the end of the 1800s searchlights had become one of the major parts of Sautter's business. It was, however, not until the beginning of the 1880ies many experiment, both theoretical and practical, were conducted in regard to military use of the so-called "mobile electric searchlight wagon" - a large mobile lantern to lit up the battlefield, both during battle and after to collect the dead and wounded. "The chief problem with the mobile searchlight, apart from its unreliability, was its impractibility. It required regular terrain on which to move and a completely vanquished army, so as to ensure that the light was not destroyed by enemy rifle fire. Mundy [reporter] reported with enthusiasm that the French ministry of war had bought thirty-five of these machines from Sautter Lemonnier and that the German army had acquired its own version from Siemens; he considered the latter inferior because it was less mobile. The 1884 conference formally endorsed this innovative use of electric light and urged the appropriate military authorities to permit its use in future wars." (Hutchinson, Champions of Charity: War and the Rise of the Red Cross)Paul Lemonnier, a civil engineer, became a partner in the already existing business of Sautter in 1870. The company then became known as Sautter, Lemonnier and Cie. The factory of Sautter and Lemonnier manufactured all of the various types of devices relating to lighthouses and to sound signals. Beginning in the 1860ies Sautter started the study of the use of electricity and the arc lamp for lighthouse illumination. When Lemonnier joined the firm they began to work closely with the Gramme and De Meritens companies who produced electrical generators and Sautter, Lemonnier sold the generators for use in lighthouses. Sautter would later take over production of the Gramme generator.
