• According “La Lumiere“ a newspaper on march the 28th 1853, E .Chevreul left at the desk of the Sciences Academy on the 23d same month, “two etched tin plates by Nicephore Niépce that had been sent by the famous inventor “from Chalon-sur-Saone on February 2nd 1827″ and printed since by M.Lemaitre….” As a matter of fact Niépce had sent five tin plates to the parisian engraver,and was explaining : “The biggest of the five is a copy of an engraving showing the Virgin,the child Jesus and St.Joseph. The four others, that are smaller are a double copy of a portrait and a landscape.”The portrait was the Cardinal of Amboise.These five plates were sent back by Leemaitre on the 5th of march. How two of these plates ended up in Chevreul’s hands? What did happen to them?

• There are a certain number of paper prints made from Niépce’s plates after his death.They should not be confused with those made upon Niépce’s own request.
