Mora's Illustrated Catalogue

 Most photographers compiled their photographs into one catalogue or several.  Mora's catalogue included hundreds of "thumbnail" sized images identified by negative number and name.  Patrons of his studio could order duplicate photos from it.  Below is a sample page from one of them.  Notice the seven portraits associated with the Grand Duke Alexis on the second row.  The third pose from the left (star) is shown here on this website in the small carte-de-visite size under Mora Photographs. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts has a complete copy of Mora's catalogue titled Illustrated Catalogue of Photographer's Negatives published around 1879.
