In 1861 French photographers, Eugenio Maunoury and brothers Eugenio and Aquiles Courret, were in partnership in Lima, Peru. Maunoury, a correspondent of French photographer, Felix Nadar, 1820-1910, of Paris, was permitted under licence from Nadar to use the Nadar logos printed in red ink on his photographs, an N on the front and Nadar on the verso. The Courret brothers acquired Maunoury's share of the studio in 1865 and continued using the Nadar logo until 1868.--Reference: Archivo fotografico Courret de la Biblioteca Nacional de Peru.
