    These rare photos, each of which captures scenes and figures involved in the Dreyfus Affair, were produced in prominent French studios at the turn of the twentieth century. The photos, which are in excellent condition, consist mainly of portraits of generals, magistrates, lawyers, statesmen, functionaries, and writers who played a role in the Affair. This series includes ninety-one 4x6 black-and-white photographs. Seventy-eight of these photos are identified in the Lipschutz guide (pp 46-49).
