China18. Rare stereoview showing what appear to be French soldiers with Chinese civilians. Bennett, who has written a number of books on early Chinese photography, in response to my inquiry writes: “I’ve not seen this image before but have come across others from the same series. It’s difficult to attribute. However, I would suggest that the soldiers are French and that they were photographed in 1860 possibly by Du Pin or Fauchery.” VG. $850
