...........The six albums PH1980:0048.01:001-050 - PH1980:0048.06:001-051 are comprised of photographs taken by Louis De Clercq during Emmanuel-Guillaume Rey's first expedition to Syria and Asia Minor for the Ministry of Public Instruction (August - 5 December 1859; 'Louis De Clercq', pp. 59-60). Emmanuel-Guillaume Rey (1837-1916), a historian of crusader castles, led the expedition and De Clercq was his assistant. The photographs are dated "negatives exposed 1859-1860" based on the expedition dates and the date of De Clercq's trip to Egypt ca. May 1860 after the expedition ('Louis De Clercq', p. 76). The photographs are also dated "published 1859-1860" based on the imprinted date on the title page of each album.............
