Notes: 

Daubigny sketched in this volume during train trips from Le Havre to Rouen (with some additional scenes of stations outside Paris) circa 1847, and it stands as a pre-cursor to the artist's lucrative career illustrating travel guides. Between the years of 1851 and 1862, Daubigny is known to have contributed to no less than fourteen books in this genre.
