    There were six albums on Theatre and Danse in the Levert Collection. Five are now in the Museum of Dance in Munich.

    The Disderi Archive is of unparallel interest for the history of photography, society and fashion. Most of the albums in the sale were pre-empted by the French Museums (Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Orsay, Musée de l'Armée, Compiegne etc.)

    Maurice Levert (1858-1944) assembled an outstanding collection on the military history of the Second Empire, and received the Disdéri Archive from General Rebora.
