Lehnert & Landrock Heliogravures
Lehnert & Landrock Original Heliogravures
Adirondack Retro is pleased to offer one of the world's largest collections of Original and Authentic Lehnert & Landrock Héliogravures (Photogravures) from 1900-1930s of iconic scenes of natives and locales in Northern Africa: Tripoli, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco for the most part. These authentic Heliogravures (sometimes referred to as photo lithographs or photo engravings) measure approx. 9.5 by 12 inches (23 x 30 cm) and are graded [ VG+ ]. They are generally sepia-toned, but many have been colored by a seemingly hand-tinted photo process. Several larger desert panorama scenes are also available, measuring approx. 12 x 23 inches (30 x 60 cm.). The photographs were taken by Lehnert and Landrock in Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Spain (the Alhambra). Unfortunately, we do not have specific identifiers for each photo except for the Alhambra photos. Though many of the original glass plate negatives were rediscovered in 1982, it is believed the glass printing plates for the amazing images in our collection were destroyed during the American & British bombardment of Germany in World War II.
