Post-mortem of Lt. Camus - attributed to Felice Beato. Shows the badly mutilated corpse of Lieutenant Camus who was assassinated by anti-foreigner Samurai on the outskirts of Yokohama, Oct. 1863. On the verso of the print, penciled in unknown hand, possibly by Beato, are several graphic accounts detailing the assassination of Camus indicating that Camus was a French Military officer and was assassinated by three Ronin on 10/18/1863, in the suburbs of Yokohama, while on horseback. It indicates that this photograph was taken in order to report the atrocity to France.
