In 1866, Alfred Hardy (1811-1893), a physician at the Hôpital Saint-Louis in Paris, learned about the first applications of photography to dermatology by Alexander John Balmanno Squire in London. He then encouraged one of his students, Arthur de Montméja, to study this new iconographic process. Montméja thus became Hardy's photographer and directed the workshop where the first photographs for the edition were shot.
