Augustin François Lemaître, born September 20, 1797 in Paris and died February 25, 1870 in the same city, was a French engraver, lithographer, draftsman, publisher and photographer. He made many drawings, prints, and creations of engraved copper and steel plates as well as the publication of books, notably with the publisher Firmin Didot Frères. He represented many landscapes, monuments, architectures and characters, especially during his many trips through Europe.

Jean-Marie Chopin (Russian: Иван Шопен; born in 1796 in Saint Petersburg; died 15 February 1871 in Paris) was a French-Russian explorer of the Caucasus.[citation needed] Son of a French sculptor and employed by Catherine II of Russia, Chopin began his career as secretary and librarian to Prince Alexander Kurakin, Russian ambassador to France for 12 years.[1] In 1812 Chopin and Kourakin returned to Russia; after the death of his patron in 1818 Chopin settled in Paris.
