Alphonse Justin Liébert (1827-1913) a French naval officer, resigned his commission and opened a photographic studio in San Francisco, 1851. By 1864, he was back in Paris, where he introduced the melainotype (tintype) and was an early advocate of the carbon process.

In this survey of American approaches to photography he included studio design, lighting apparatus, darkroom work and enlarging as well as photo-sculpture, many of his own design.
