Description
When photography appeared shortly before 1840, the metal-plate daguerreotype invented in France became the first popular format. But the process simultaneously developed by William Henry Fox Talbot in England for capturing an image on a paper negative—from which many positives could be printed—provided the foundation on which photography would build for the next 150 years. This beautifully produced catalogue presents 118 large plates printed from paper negatives, or calotypes, as well as 133 additional black and white figures and 124 thumbnail images in the book's illustrated index of calotype photographers, spanning the full course of the paper negative's "golden age."
