    It's from my old photography encyclopedia.

    "Civiale, Aimé. 18?? - 1893
    French army officer (génie). Perfected the paper negative process and used it in topography. His equipment for large composite panorama photographs of the Pyrenees weight 550lbs and required 25 mens and mules for transport (1887-8)"
