From The Garden: an illustrated weekly journal of gardening in all its branches, 1887, p. 413:
"Admiring the beauty of Gloire du Dijon...we thought last year that it would be well to find out somethingof the raiser and give a portrait of him if possible. We found on inquiry that no protrait had been engraved; we succeeded in getting a photograph, through the aid in the first instance of M. F. Jamin, of Bourg-la-Reine, and afterward of Mr. Webber, of the Botanic Gardens at Dijon, who kindly communicated with the family of Henri Jacotot....Jacotot lived and was nurseryman in the town of Dijon, in Burgundy, and died there not many years ago.
