In the late 1800s, the French magazine Le Tour du Monde featured different articles with engravings regarding travelers' experiences in Laos. A few have been making their way to auction recently and showing up online. An interesting find showing how the French tried to present things in the old days:
MEETING WITH KING PHOUEUNS' SISTER. 1885.
THE MEUONG NGAN CITY. 1885.
HUNTING ON THE MOUNTAIN NEAR BASSAC. 1870.
SCULPTED ROCKS IN NAM OU. 1885.
MEKONG DURING CHOLERA. 1885
THE PUNISHMENT. 1870.
