Victor Fouque's, La vérité sur l'invention de la photographie, 1867, was the first biography of Niépce; in it, Fouque argues that Niépce's role in the invention of the photograph was far greater than what Daguerre subsequently claimed. This volume, the first edition in English was translated by Edward Epstean.
