From Duc de Luynes, Voyage d'Exploration a la Mer Morte, a Petra, et sur la Rive Gauche du Jourdain. Paris: Arthus Bertrand, ca 1868-1874. Vignes accompanied the Duc de Luynes an archaeologist, numismatist and art collector on a trip to Lebanon and Palestine in 1864, despite of or because of his passionate amateur status as a photographer. He took calotypes and collodion negatives to record key places. The Duke chose Negre to make the prints and photogravures from Vignes photographs.
