For the first time it is constituted and critically organized - through philological analysis on a documentary basis (Archives Nationales, MAP, MAD, BnF), the correction, the integration (even of little-known and not studied elements) and the interpretation of data (sometimes incorrect even in official French sites) - a reconstruction of non-secondary aspects of the nineteenth-century restoration of Notre-Dame de Paris, coming to be able to verify the state of things before the restoration and the progression of the site.

A fundamental source is the corpus of photographs - daguerreotypes and calotypes - which has never been reconstructed with such completeness, even verifying and innovating attributions, datings, and subjects.
