Letter from Maxime Du Camp 
1880, 4 March 
  
Letter 
Bazar Nadar / Wouter Lambrechts 
 
LL/95151 
  
He writes about a portrait photograph of him and lies about the existence of it: “Ma photographie n’a jamais été faite...”.
 
The writer was a pioneer in photographic history. In 1880 he was was elected a member of the Académie française. Because of this occasion his portrait was asked in a previous letter.
 
In this letter he is answering (wrongly) that his portrait doesn't exist.
