'Album Pintoresco de la Republica Mexicana' was published in about 1850 by Julio Michaud & Thomas. The author (and one of the illustrators) is recorded as Pierre Frédéric Lehnert. Other contributing artists include: F Bastin, Chénot, and Urbano Lopez. The album consists of 45 lithographs, some modelled after original war paintings by Carl Nebel and Pedro Gualdi.
A first edition of the album is apparently very rare, listed at €11,000 at one site. I say 'apparently' because the publishing history is complicated with various editions, and varying numbers of illustrations, issued in the early 1850s. Or so it seems.
'Album Pintoresco de la Republica Mexicana' is available from Southern Methodist University, Central University Libraries, DeGolyer Library. Thanks CB.
