The Art of French calotype : With a critical dictionary of photographers, 1845-1870
Princeton, Princeton University Press, 1983
(24 × 27 cm), xxiv, 284 pp., 69 full-page plates, 131 figures/illustrations throughout text. Publisher’s cloth, pictorial dust jacket. - “The most complete, the most scrupulously researched, and certainly the most beautiful book on the art of the French calotype… The amount of new information is extraordinarily rich - so much so that obscure and virtually forgotten photographers can no longer be ignored”. “The plates are quite simply marvellous. Printed on acid-free paper, they exude all the distinctive mystique of the calotype” (quotations from a review by Ronald Pickvance, in The Burlington Magazine, volume 126, 1984, pp.365-366). ¶ Dust jacket shelf worn. Excellent, unmarked copy.
