Charles Chevalier (1804-1859) was the leading French manufacturer of the camera obscura, lenses and optical instrument. In 1826, he furnished Niépce with a camera and lens of his own design for his early experiments in reproducing images through the agency of light. He told Niépce of the similar experiments of Daguerre, for whom he also made lenses and cameras, as well as advised him on his experiments. It is Chevalier who made the introduction which lead to the partnership between Niépce and Daguerre. Further, Chevalier supplied lenses and camera equipment for William Henry Fox Talbot. In this manual, Chevalier offers the latest improvements to collodion plates, albumenized paper, the daguerreian and other processes, written by himself, Hippolyte Bayard, Arthur Chevalier, among others. He describes a new advancement in darkroom construction and usage, and he touts the superiority of his Photographe àverres combinés, the first double, or portrait lens made for photography; it was also the first variable focal length lens, consisting of lens components that could be reassembled to obtain different formation and focal lengths for portraits, landscapes and other requirements.
