Claude Motteroz was born in 1830, at Romanèche (Saône-et-Loire) into an old family of printers. As a typographer and printer, the Municipal Council of Paris awarded him several contracts to print its school books and official publications. In 1874, he established in Paris a large workshop for many forms of photomechanical reproductions.

This volume is a discourse and procedural on the various processes of Barreswil, Lemercier, Poitevin, Sendefelder, Tissier, Woodbury, and others. Printed entirely by heliogravure, this is a reissue of the 1871 Gauthier-Villiars edition, with a slightly different title printed on the wrappers, REPRODUCTION HÉLIOGRAPHIQUE DE L'ESSAI SUR LES GRAVURES CHIMIQUES EN RELIEF, a new introduction, and limited to 100 numbered copies, of which this is No. 2.

OCLC locates seven copies of the first edition and a single copy of this limited reissue at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Not listed by Roosens and Salu.
