The desire of Du Camp (1822-1894) to be a truth-teller, introducing photographs as an evidence of facts, became the reason behind the massive success of the first book of Photography ever published in 1852 : “Egypte, Nubie, Palestine et Syrie. Dessins photographiques recueillis pendant les années 1849,1850 et 1851″, Blanquart-Evrard, 1852.
