Rare circa 1863 original carte de visite of a Chinese woman. Photographed by French photographer Eugene Maunoury, who operated in Peru in the Civil War era, and who, according to the back, was a correspondent of the notable photographer Felix Nadar of Paris, who published the image.

On the back is written, "John Chinaman", however, I do believe it is a woman, possibly with bound feet.

4" x 2.5". A wonderful rare image in very good vintage condition, as shown.
