Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection consists of research notes, correspondence, photographs, and drafts for three articles by Rice, published in the Princeton University Library Chronicle (autumn 1951, summer 1959, spring 1971), concerning the French engraver, Charles Balthazar Julien Fevret de Saint-Mémin (1770-1852). Saint-Mémin spent the years 1793 to 1814 in America, where he became known for his portraits, made with the use of a "physiognotrace" machine, of many famous Americans, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Included is correspondence with Pierre Quarre concerning an exhibition on Saint-Mémin in Dijon, France, in 1963, and miscellaneous notes, articles, and illustrations about Saint-Mémin.
