foreword


A total of twenty–seven issues of photohistorica were produced in Belgium from 1978 to 1992. After the first five of those fifteen years the listing of articles relating to the history of photography substantially developed into two double–numbered issues each year. Karel van Deuren (the editor thoughout the entire 1980s), Dr. Laurent Roosens (inaugural President of ESHPh), and Luc Salu (librarian of the museum of photography at Antwerpen) were the compilers of the bibliography and the publication of photohistorica was made possible by annual grants provided by Agfa–Gevaert. Laurent Roosens, who had taken over as editor in 1991, retired in 1993. Thus the last issue of photohistorica, No. 52/53 of December 1992, was dispatched from Antwerpen to members of the society in the summer of 1993. Luc Salu then compiled a detailed Cumulative Index covering all issues of the bibliography for the years 1978 to 1992. From the remaining funds provided by Agfa–Gevaert this valuable Cumulative Index was sent out to members of ESHPh in mid–1994. It could have marked the end of an era.

1993–94 witnessed two years of financial insecurity for the ESHPh in which only one issue (No. 5) of the other journal – Photoresearcher – could be produced in a reduced form. The society, now with an income limited solely to the subscriptions of its members, has never–the–less organised two highly successful symposia: in Spain in June 1993 and Norway at end of August 1994. Special thanks are due to the relevant organising teams headed by Miguel Galmes in Barcelona and Roger Erlandsen in Oslo. There can be little doubt that members who have attended these symposia appreciate that the ESHPh provides in this way an intellectual stimulus and social pleasure in meeting others from a world–wide range of countries. But in addition the production of a bibliography of articles on the history of photography from current serials has been of undoubted value and a justified function of the ESHPh. A total of 7229 items were listed in the issues of photohistorica for the years 1978 to 1992. Apart from the dispatch of the last number in 1993 and the Cumulative Index in 1994 it was not possible, until costs of production could be obtained, for any member of the society to continue to compile current bibliographies. However, very special thanks can now be expressed to Agfa–Gevaert in Belgium for making a grant to ESHPh in February 1995 to cover the printing costs of one issue of a renewed photohistorica.

The last issue of the bibliography covered articles published not later than December 1992. Thus on resuming production the new editor has first a duty to apologise for the fact that this bibliography is unavoidably much less up to date than in the past. This present issue is devoted to articles published during January to December 1993. Without on–going day–to–day compilation during the last two years a hard task is set to close the time gap for the following issue. Hopefully in its turn that issue can be produced after another six months to cover the year of 1994.

An improved coverage of periodical literature can be obtained if members are willing to contribute towards that task. The editor looks forward to hearing from members of the society who would like to pursue that aim. Contributors from Portugal, Spain, Germany, and countries of eastern Europe are especially sought. Thanks are extended to those persons named on the title page who have already for the present issue contributed bibliographic data on articles in periodicals published in their own countries during 1993. In the near future consideration will be given to a radical change in subject classes and arrangement of the listings. In the meanwhile, the classifications and format of the bibliographies for 1993 and 1994 will remain as previously established. The items here listed since those covered by the Cumulative Index for issues 1–53 of the years 1978 to 1992 continues with the same consecutive individual numbering of the previous series and thus the first that follows is item number PH93–7230.

[An update on the short subsequent history of photohistorica after the publication of these two issues of 1993 and 1994 can be found in the brief  [Postscript] at the end of the index page to the present online version]

PH93–7233 The X–Ray Centennial: Thompsons and Thomsons.
ALMOND, Peter R.
Medical Physics (American Institute of Physics, New York), March/April 1993, 20 (2), 275–281.
When x–rays were discovered by Roentgen in November 1895 the news spread rapidly and many persons became involved in their development. Five prominent participants happened to have the similar names of Thompson or Thomson, which has sometimes caused confusion in the history of x–rays. They are thus considered in turn in this article. In Britain they were William Thompson (Lord Kelvin, 1824–1907), J.J. Thomson (1856–1940), and Silvanus P. Thompson (1851–1916), and in the Unites States it was Elihu Thomson (1853–1937). Lastly the author attempts to bring together a little fragmented information on Edward P Thompson, an American patent attorney who co–authored a book on Roentgen Rays.

Thousands of vertical, oblique and ground photographs, as well as cinefilm, were taken of high landscape, land use, settlements, and archaeological features. Main collection of these aerial photographs is at the US Museum of Natural History.

PH93–7236 The Daguerreotype as a Photometer: Spanish technical innovations in photography’s beginnings.
RIEGO, Bernardo.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 110–5.
On 18 November 1839 (this date is misprinted on p.110 of this article as 18 October) the first trials in Madrid of the daguerreotype were headed by Dr. Juan M. Pou y Camps (1801–1865). Three translations into Spanish of Daguerre’s manual appeared in which the third had the original text translated by Dr. Joaquim Hysern with additional notes written by Dr. Pou. Not only did Pou discuss his own ideas with regard to the use of the daguerreotype for experiments in photometry, but in addition to Daguerre’s six plates in the manual a seventh signed by Dr. Pou (illustrated in Riego’s article) was added showing his conversion of a daguerreotype camera into a photometer.

Geneological information from early seventeenth century to end of nineteenth century on the Newton family, centred on William Newton (1786–1861) who had a globemaking business in Fleet street, London, and one of several generations of patent agents. [Note by the bibliographer: although it is an aspect not known or considered by the author, this article is of indirected relevance with regard to the early history of the daguerreotype in England as William Newton in the 1830s and 1840s was in partnership with Miles Berry, in whose name the daguerreotype was patented in England, and both men dealt with legal actions involving the transfer of the patent.]

In the 1850s was receiving a pension from the Foreign Office on medical grounds. Gutch’s album ‘Photographic illustrations of Scotland’, which is the prime subject of this article, consists of 39 views made in Scotland in 1857. It is one of the George Eastman House museum’s earliest travel albums of salt prints made from wet–collodion negatives.

PH93–7248 More about Frederick Whaley.
ADAMSON, Keith I.P.
PhotoHistorian, Spring 1993, (100), 20–22.
The mature part in the 1890s of professional photographic career in the north of England of Whaley (born 1860) was dealt with in 2 issues of the same journal (previously titled RPS Historical Group Quarterly), in December 1987 and March 1988. Mainly from local newspaper advertisements, but also with data about his family from the 1891 census recently released, more information on Whaley’s studios in Lincoln in 1882–88, and later at Worksop, Doncaster and Scarborough, is presented. Apart from such further gleanings and one piece of evidence that he was at Cheltenham in 1905, anything about professional activity or personal fate after that date still remains to be discovered.

PH93–7252 Alvin Langdon Coburn: The Silent Bard.
SCHRIVER, Janet.
History of Photography, Autumn 1993, 17 (3), 299–301.
A very different phase began in the life of A.L. Coburn when he decided in 1918 at the age of 36 to end his successful professional photographic career. He justified this change “on the grounds of ultimate values.Spiritual concerns are more important”. In the 1920s he joined several quasi–mystical organisations. Little has been written before about this part of his life (a little by M. Weaver in a recent book on Coburn) so Schriver concentrates on Coburn as a “Welsh Bard” of the Welsh Gorsedd Society. Concluding sentence: “Coburn’s membership in his chosen organisations seems to have given him clues to a hidden language that was brighter than the luminosity of the photographic image”.

Pratique privilégiée des avant–gardes, le photomontage est né en Allemagne en 1916 d’une rencontre entre Georges Grosz et John Heartfield. Par sa puissance d’évocation et son efficace capacité narrative, le photomontage s’impose comme un langage de propagande au service du militantisme révolutionnaire des années trente.

PH93–7270 C.H. Monkton – the bad guy of NZ photography?
MAIN, Bill.
NZ Journal of Photography, November 1993, (13), 17–8.
Little is known about photographer Charles Henry Monkton who was active in New Zealand from around 1860 to early 1880’s. The designs on the back of three of his cartes de visite of his studios at various places and periods are illustrated. What little can be found concerns debts and bankruptcy, and particular attention is drawn to evidence from a newspaper report of 1882 that court proceedings were taken against Monkton for copying and selling a portrait of the Maori King Tawhiao copyrighted by another photographer. Discussion of the subject of portraits taken of Tawhiao in 1882 is extended by Main on p. 20 and one is illustrated.

PH93–7271 Robert H. Vance: Pioneer of the Daguerreotype in Chile.
ALEXANDER, Abel.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 11–30.
Robert H. Vance (1825–1876) is well known for his photographic and entrepreneurial activities in California, but the author fills in what has previously been a period of uncertainty by establishing that after sailing from Boston around South America Vance had daguerreotype galleries in Valparaiso and Santiago, Chile from 1847 to 1850. When he left for California in 1850, he stopped off first in Peru, daguerreotyping in the very remote city of Cuzco, which the author considers the most significant work done by Vance while in South America. In this article Abel Alexander of Buenos Aires adds a considerable background of knowledge about photography in Chile in the late 1840s.

PH93–7272 Charles Herbert Tremear “The Patriarch of Twentieth–Century Daguerreotypy in America”.
TINDER, Dave.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 44–73.
Charles H. Tremear (1865–1943), was a portrait photographer in the 1890s and early 1900s. Although he became an auto–mobile worker for nearly two decades in Michigan, USA, from 1929 until his death in 1943 he had a Tintype Studio in Greenfield village, Michigan, where he made daguerreotypes throughout the 1930s as well as notably in the Kodak building at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. Extensively illustrated (34 figs.) including many photographs of Tremear engaged in the various steps of producing daguerreotypes.

PH93–7273 Brady’s Four New York City Galleries – Not Three!
GILBERT, George.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 74–9.
In an interview, which later gained considerable historiographic influence, given by the renown American photographer Mathew B. Brady (1823–1896) in 1891, he mentioned he had three studios at various times on Broadway, New York. George Gilbert of the American Photographic Historical Society reviews the situation to show that not only was Brady established at various periods at 205,354, and 785 Broadway, New York, but for almost one year from late 1859 to Summer of 1869 had an interim studio at 643 Broadway at the corner of Bleecker Street. Indeed it must have been here that Brady took one of his most famous portraits of Abraham Lincoln, so successful that Lincoln apparently remarked that “Mathew Brady and the Cooper Institute made me President”

PH93–7274 J.F. Ryder’s Ithica Days.
CAMP, William L.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 126–30.
James F. Ryder began as a daguerreotypist in 1847. He settled in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1850 where he pursued a vigorous and prominent career in photography almost until he died in 1904. His autobiography Voigtlander and I in Pursuit of Shadow Catching was published in 1902. In this book Ryder dealt with his life and work in the 1840s mainly in Ithica, New York in less detail than his later days, so the author of this article has added more information about the daguerreotyping activities of Ryder, his associates, and other professionals at Ithica obtained by researching the local newspaper of September 1848 to October 1853.

PH93–7275 William Herman Rulofson “The P.T. Barnum of American Photography”.
PALMQUIST, Peter E.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 136–54, 259–71.
Canadian by birth, W.H. Rulofson (1826–1878) worked in Daguerreotype studios for several years in Boston and New Brunswick before sailing to California in 1849 where after practising from a travelling wagon had a portrait studio in Sonera, California, until forming in 1863 an immensely successful ‘Gallery of Photographic Art’ in San Fransiso with H.W. Bradley (1813–1891). A very detailed chronology of his life and work is provided (pp. 139–46, 259–71) and a portfolio of eight daguerreotype images from the early 1850s of Stockton, California.

PH93–7276 “...and Simons.” Montgomery Pike Simons of Philadelphia (1816/7–1877).
BATY, Laurie A.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 183–200.
Simons starting daguerreotyping in 1842 becoming a wellknown professional photographer in Philadelphia during the 1850s and 60s. He published more than 25 articles and letters in the photographic press and wrote three manuals on photography. Yet he has been almost entirely ignored in the standard histories. The author writes (endnote 64) that “This disregard for Simons is similar to the twentieth–century phenomenon of, ‘if an individual’s not in Newhall’s history, then they’re not important to the history of photography,’ a sentiment many revisionist photo–historians fight on a daily basis”. Thus, as Simons in contrast was well known in his day, the author researched his life and work from primary sources.

While a previous article by Dewan in History of Photography, Winter 1992 (v16 (4), 302–317), had provided a wider picture of photography carried out by several photographers for the Bombay and Madras governments for a period from 1855 to 1870, the present work, finely researched from primary official sources mainly at the Oriental and Indian Office Library in London, expands on the careers of the Englishmen Thomas Biggs and Dr. William H. Pigou (1817–1858) as official photographers for the Bombay presidency from 1855 to 1858.

PRINCELLE, Jean–Loup
Cyclope (F), 1993 (12), 12–19.
3e partie d’une étude historique sur le 35mm. Le français René Millaud serait le premier photographe à avoir utilisé un appareil 35mm en décembre 1905. Conçu par le bordelais Henri Bayle (brevet le 11 décembre 1922), le Phototank qui précède le Leica de quelques années, ne sera pas commercialisé. L’appareil de poche Le Furet, fabriqué en France en 1923 est le premier appareil photo européen utilisant du film 35mm perforé avec une image plein format. L’Esco de Otto Seischab, conçu à Nuremberg en 1923, utilise 7,5m de film 35mm perforé pour 400 vues 17x24. Le Cent vues, créé par Etienne Mollier en 1914, est fabriqué à partir de 1924. Son boîtier est vertical et il est muni d’un film de 100 vues sous forme de cassette. Son aspect est alors fort proche du Leica.

PH93–7304 Le Verascope.
TAVLITZKI, Pierre.
Bulletin Mensuel du Stéréo Club Français, Novembre 1993, (773), 16–19.
Looking back one hundred years to stereoscopy in the early 1890s this article describes the stereocameras and viewers produced in Paris by Jules Richard (1848–1930). The Verascope Enregistreur 45x107 camera appearing in 1894 had a newly created format of 4 x 4.5 cm on a single glass plate and could also be used as a steroscope viewer. In the early years of the 20th century the Richard company sold a very wide range of positive stereo views on glass and employed up to 250 people. Later products of the company are also discussed, particularly in relation to their unique formats, and the failure of the Verascope 40 of 1939. Production ceased in 1967.

PH93–7305 Xray of Hasselblad and Kiev 88.
GREENE, Arnold.
New England Journal of Photographic History, 1993, 138/9, 16. X–ray images comparing the internal construction of two similar SLR cameras in the Jack Naylor Collection: an original Hasselblad 500CM and Kiev 88, made in Russia, modelled on the former. Shows that the Hasselblad had a lens with two components with all the shutter mechanism in the lens, while the Kiev lens has three component optics with a complicated shutter mechanism operated from the advance knob so that repair would be more difficult if required. Suggests that radiography is a useful tool for examination before servicing cameras.

PH93–7306 Polaroid and Other Pocket Cameras for Spies.
NAYLOR, Jack.
New England Journal of Photographic History,1993,138/9, 20–2. N.K.Cherrill’s 1907 design for a flat–folding camera is compared with the renown Polaroid SX–70 of the 1970s. Also describes and illustrates some short–lived productions: the Pocket Kozy, a pocket detective camera made in Boston in 1898, the Swiss Vega Book camera of 1900, and the small German Lopa detective camera place on sale in 1902 which in England was called Pocket Cyko.

An account of the pioneering work of neglected engineer E.H. Amet (1860–1948). He designed a cine projector in 1894, forming an enterprise with George K. Spoor to manufacture this ‘magniscope’ from 1895 to about 1899. For a few years at the turn of the century his Magniscope Exhibition Company at Waukegan, Illinois, made movie shorts. Amet and Spoor parted company and the article gives considerable attention to Spoor’s activities after forming an influential Chicago movie production company Essanay in 1907. In 1912 Amet secured a patent for synchronous sound film projection, just one of 58 wide–ranging patents obtained during his life.  N.B.

PH93–7337 1839 Daguerreotype Found in New England.
NAYLOR, Jack.
New England Journal of Photographic History,1992, 137(4), 3.
Five daguerreotypes have come to light at the Historical Society of Old Newbury, Massachusetts, USA. A gift to the Society made,probably in the early 1960s, by a Mrs Skinner in memory of her sister, Harriet Perkins, are of Newbury scenes by Dr. Henry C. Perkins (1804–1873). The importance of this small collection lies in the fact that two whole plates are clearly dated as early as October 1839. One is illustrated along with its written inscription “View of part of High & State Street from Dr. Dana’s Church Oct.30, 1839”.

PH93–7338 Once in a Lifetime. The True Story of the Plumbe Daguerreotypes.
KESSLER, Mike.
The Photographist, Fall 1993, (99), 10–19,22.
In the 1840s John Plumbe took several daguerreotypes of buildings in Washington including the US Capitol Building and the White House. Mike Kessler provides an collector’s tale of the way he obtained seven of the then unidentified daguerreotypes in 1971 from a collector’s “swap meet” in California. Within two years he sold six to the Library of Congress where they are now preserved, and illustrated in his article. “Over the years”, he says, “the story has often been exaggerated and improperly reported”, and indeed his personal account of such collecting activity is of considerable interest.

From 1930–1950 Marks took photographs of roads and buildings of southern Indiana, now in a collection at the Lilly Library of Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA. The author discusses the importance of photographs as historical records: “there will come a day when not just some but all of the structures Grace Marks made the effort to photograph in the 1930s–1950s will no longer be there. They will exist only as images pasted on to a card”.

MAIN, Bill.
NZ Journal of Photography, August 1993, (12), 14–7.
The author made a preliminary search through the Fine Arts Copyright records at the New Zealand National Archives in Wellington and found that 280 Photographs were registered for copyright in New Zealand from 1886 to 1946. Information on subject and photographer has been gathered: “The list of names encountered in these files reads like a Who’s Who in New Zealand Photography”. However access to the photographs deposited with the registrations forms is time consuming and in this first search the author saw only a sample of forty photographs. William Main gives his opinion on the best policy for preserving this collection.

PH93–7351 A Curate’s Egg? The Hardwicke Knight Photography Collection at MoNZ–TPT [Museum of New Zealand, Wellington].
MAIN, Bill.
NZ Journal of Photography, August 1993, (12), 6.
The collection (photographs, books, cameras and other equipment) of Hardwicke Knight, a historian of New Zealand photography, has been purchased by the Museum of N.Z at Wellington. It will be a long time before the collection is completely catalogued,and much put on display to the public, but Bill Main gained an opportunity to briefly view some of it. With regard to the cameras (almost entirely 19th century), the writer was perplexed by a large number of replicas. Realising it might be a long time before anyone else might have a chance to survey the collection, yet being in a vulnerable situation because of problems of assessing the collection in the present circumstances, the writer felt bound to “sadly conclude that the Hardwicke Knight camera collection is very second rate”.

History of Photography, Summer 1993, 17 (2), 218.
A short note by the editors of the journal on some of the photographs of P.H. Emerson (1856–1936) held at GEH, Rochester, NY. In particular draws attention to the use of the same sky incorporated into at least four different images and to a group of four images of fisherfolk “interiors” which seem to have been produced on an outside set, thus being genre pictorialist constructs rather than documentary naturalist photographs.

JACOB, Michael G.
Fotologia (Firenze), 1992, (14–15), 8–21.
Not only in Italian but also (as befits an article concerned predominately with history of the subject in America) the text is in English on pp.3–10 of the journal’s English translation supplement. Before the true colour processes of the 1880s it is a fact that coloured images existed from 1841 onwards after J.B. Isenring in Switzerland found a way to apply transparent colours by hand to the fragile daguerreotype plate. Mike Jacob provides a good account of the way Isenring’s method, and later developments of applying colour, were patented in England and USA. American Patents for chemical colour methods are also considered and substantial attention is paid to the neglected history in America of Levi Hill’s ‘Heliochromes’ of the early 1850s.

By studying the thermodynamics and photochemical reaction of fading of dyes in photographic material, the rates can be determined. Images that have degraded can be reconstructed digitally by applying algorithms, derived from the fading rates, to the degraded image.. By doing this it is possible to restore image colours close to that of the original but printed on a new material.

Between 1875 and 1890 the so far small workshop of Carl Zeiss in Jena developed into a modern factory. This change was due to Ernst Abbe’s theoretical work in the field of microscopic image formation on which he had worked since the late 1860s and so allowed microscopes to be manufactured according to scientific principles. However this new approach only came to fruition with the development by Otto Schott of special optical glasses in the Jena glass factory since 1884. Carl Zeiss and Abbe used these innovations with prudence and in the interests of the commercial development of the company.

This List is preceded by an authoritative digest of the publication of the earliest articles on photography in American newspapers and in literary and scientific periodicals in 1839.

BARUCH, J.E.F., GREEN,R.J., BUDGE, A., et al.
Journal of Photographic Science, 1993, 41 (3), 123.
Synopsis of a paper read at symposium ‘Imaging the Future’ at Cambridge in September 1992. Points out that the media industry is not entirely technology driven, for it also depends on which product will be taken up by consumers. Two examples from the past history of silver halide photography are considered. There was a greater demand for the daguerreotype in the 1840s although the negative positive process finally became successful. A parallel can be drawn between the public response to the easy–to–use Kodak system introduced by Eastman in the late 1880s with the marketing of DX coded film, self–loading and auto focus cameras in the late 1980s.

Has a list of Public Archives in Australia holding photographic source material (5–6), and a list of nineteenth century Australian Newspapers and Periodicals (25–7). Concentrates on the nineteenth century.

PH93–7426 The Diorama in Great Britain in the 1820s.
WOOD, R. Derek.
History of Photography, Autumn 1993, 17 (3), 284–95.
This article shows that Dioramas were built not only in London but also in Liverpool, Manchester, Dublin and Edinburgh. It was an entirely independent enterprise, with Daguerre being involved only to the slight extent that the British proprietors contracted with him to buy his original tableaux. As well as establishing when and where dioramas painted by Daguerre and Bouton were displayed in Great Britain, the author opens the article by first discussing brief rival ventures in Edinburgh and in Bristol in 1825 to present unauthentic dioramas to the public.

PH93–7427 Daguerre’s Demonstrations in 1839 at the Palais d’Orsay.
WOOD, R. Derek and HARMANT, Pierre G.
History of Photography, Winter 1992, 16 (4), 400–1.
The place where Daguerre gave his first public demonstration of his technique in September 1839 has in the past been referred to by historians in varying ways. On the left bank of the Seine opposite the Louvre, the building had only recently been built in the late 1830s with its function not yet established. This short note suggests that in future writings the situation would be clarified if the building is named as the Palais d’Orsay.

PH93–7428 Ste Croix in London.
WOOD, R. Derek.
History of Photography, Spring 1993, 17 (1), 101–7.
An account of the first demonstrations of the Daguerreotype in London between 13 September and the end of the third week of October 1839. Also considers the earlier release of information in Paris about Daguerre’s technique. Sets the scene for the following companion article by P. James, linked by an editorial title of ‘The Enigma of Monsieur de Sainte–Croix’.

PH93–7429 Ste Croix and the Daguerreotype in Birmingham.
JAMES, Peter.
History of Photography, Spring 1993, 17 (1), 107–13, 13–4.
Important revelation that the shadowy Ste Croix did not entirely disappear from history after demonstrating the daguerreotype in public in London but went northward to do the same in Birmingham during the last week of October 1839. The author goes on to reassess the first years of photography in Birmingham with particular attention to a discussion of daguerreotype plate makers in the city, to Dr. John Percy (1817–1889, George Shaw (1818–1904), and Dr. J.B. Melsom (1811–1898). A postscript to this article quotes a letter written in 1877 by a J. Smith of Kew looking back to a visit of Dr. J. Percy to Kew in 1839 with regard to the existence there of Niepce’s heliographs.

PH93–7431 Monsieur de Sainte Croix.
JACOB, Mike.
History of Photography, Winter 1993, 17 (4), 397–8.
Correspondence from Mike Jacob following on an article by Wood (PH93–7428) in regard not so much to Sainte Croix’s public demonstrations of the daguerreotype process in London in September 1839, but to a report ( quoted in full from the London weekly Mirror of Literature of 19 October 1839) of a later rival event carried out by J.T. Cooper (Jnr) at the Polytechnic Institution in Regent Street, London. [The correspondant does also briefly question a standardization of the name of Ste Croix which the present abstractor is aware was an editorial style decision by the journal: there is no way of judging which of the various forms of the name used in press reports in 1839 was correct.]

PH93–7432 A Daguerreotypist in Dover.
ADAMSON, Keith I.P.
The PhotoHistorian, Summer 1993, (101), 10–11.
A translation into English of Daguerre’s Manual was published in November 1839 by a Dr. J. P. Simon described on the title page as “a native of France”. It comes as a surprise to learn from a search by Keith Adamson through the Dover Chronicle newspaper for the period 1839 to 1844 that Dr Simon was a medical practitioner resident in that city port for five years until the end of 1844. He gave lectures in Dover on scientific subjects including one on the Daguerreotype on 21 November 1839 and during the following two years.

WILLIAMSON, Glenn G.
Times Literary Supplement(London), 19 March 1993, 13
Extended review of Larry Schaaf'’s 1992 book Out of the Shadows: Herschel, Talbot, and the invention of Photography. The reviewer concludes that the book “demonstrates that to credit Talbot as sole inventor of photographic negative–positive process is to present the history of photography from a very limited perspective”. However, the “insistence that Talbot was not only creating the medium, but also the art of photography...is undercut by much of the evidence offered by the text. Here one sees Talbot as being much more interested in the commercial aspects... the entrepreneur with his eye on uses and markets”.

PAPAGEORGE, Tod.
Times Literary Supplement (London), 19 March 1993, (4694), 9.
The writer’s own answer to his rhetorical question is – No. The concept of a book The New York School Photographs 1936–1963 by J. Livingston is considered by Papageorge as not defensible because the sixteen photographers included are too loosely defined to constitute a clearly compatible group. The particular issue of TLS in which this and the previous entry [PH93–7434] appears largely features Photography on pp.7–13. Other reviews are of books on Atget (Atget’s Seven Albums), E–J. Marey, W. Eugene Smith, and erotic photography of Robert Mapplethorpe and Sally Mann.

This article mainly concerns portraits of artists in England in the second half of the nineteenth century but does also point out that photography was not of significance in publications concerning artists until 1884 with photography of artists and their ateliers by J.P. Mayall appearing in E.G. Stephen’s Artists at Home and in R.W. Robinson’s Members of the Royal Acedemy of Arts of 1891, although a considerable number of photographs of artists have survived from this period, witness 2000 photographs of artists in a collection of London Art dealer, Jeremy Maas, some of which appeared in the catalogue The Victorian Art World in Photography of an exhibition held at National Portrait Gallery in London.

PH93–7451 Felix Who?

British Journal of Photography, 14 Jan.,1993, 140 (6905), 25.
Review by Roger Taylor of Felix Teynard: Calotypes of Egypt published by Kraus Inc, New York, with an essay by K. Howe: the book discussed sumptiously reproduces the work of Félix Teynard (1817–1892), a French engineer in Egypt in 1852 and 1853, published by Goupil by 1858 as a portfolio of 160 prints. [This short review is recorded for its debatable assumption that the name and work of Teynard remains unknown].

British Journal of Photography, 20 May 1993, 140 (6923), 30.
A review of Mark Haworth–Booth's book, Camille Silvy: River Scene, France (J.Paul Getty Museum, 1992), in which Taylor reflects that “There are many ways in which the history of photography has been considered ... surveys, biographies, monographs, bibliographies and critical texts. By starting with a single photograph and subjecting it to art–historical analysis, much in the manner one would a painting, this book establishes a distinctive approach to the writing of photographic history...expanding its horizons”.

PH93–7453 Estonian Photography: Between the East and West.
TOOMING, Peeter.
Photoresearcher, December 1993, (5), 14–19.
The 19th century is dealt with briefly: the first studio in Tallin was opened by daguerreotypist Carl Borchardt in 1844. Political changes suffered in this area of the Baltic make it difficult to know who was the first photographer of Estonian nationality. The most noteworthy fact is that the world’s best known miniature camera, the Minox, was designed in Tallin in 1936 by Walter Zapp, although it was put into production in Riga, Latvia. Tooming discusses in particular the situation after 1945, highlighting the importance of camera clubs for survival of Estonian creativity.

Discusses the part photographs could have in the study of African history. Centres on the Basel Missionary Society’s photograph holdings (and to a lesser extent of the North German Mission in Bremen). After first outlining the earliest known photographic work of the British methodist Daniel West in 1856 and Wilhelm Locher of the Basel Mission in Ghana between 1857 and 1867, the author points out that in the 1850s missionaries in training at Basel could take instruction in photography and concentrates on the work of Christian Hornberger who photographed in the Ewe area of now SE Ghana in the 1860s. Looks at the use of illustrations in the missionary publication Monatsblatt der Norddeutschen Mission from 1863 to 1888 and perception of the social environment in which the missionaries worked. Has 43 detailed reference notes (112–6) and concludes with a valuable Bibiography (116–80).

No contemporary description of the camera is known or its fate, but “it is believed to have been a handsome rosewood veneer,quarter––plate chamfered sliding–box camera made in New York” and Naylor illustrates (cover,p.1) this type of camera from his own collection.

PH93–7463 Foto Hermanos Mayo. A Mexican Collective.
MRAZ, John.
History of Photography, Spring 1993, 17 (1), 81–89.
Having its roots in the civil war of the 1930s in Spain, the Hermanos Mayo group since 1939 “can be considered as the first ‘democratizing’ photojournalists in Mexican mass publications”. The pseudonym “Mayo”, which the five members (Francisco (Paco), Faustino, Julio, Cándido, and Pablo)established, reflects their commitment to photographic documentation of working class political and social struggle in Mexico. Draws attention to Fondos Hermanos Mayo, an archive of about five million negatives, now at Archivio General de la Nación, Mexico

History of Photography, Autumn 1993, 17 (3), 244–52.
A discussion not only essential reading for those who are interested in the photographers who worked for the US govenment’s Farm Security Administration in the 1930s, but for the problems that can arise if future generations judge the past in the light of its own prejudices. Because the photographers of the FSA are still able to respond from personal exerience to any such reinterpretation, this article and two letters from J.C. Curtis and Sally Stein (Winter issue, 17 (4), 398–9, 399–400) will provide an important historiographic case study.

The first book on D.O. Hill (1802–1870), Der Meister der Photographie by Heinrich Schwarz (1894–1974), published in 1931 is accorded great historiographic importance by Gasser: it marked “an essential turning point for the historiography of photography, namely the change from histories of techniques to exploring the histories of the image”.

Although Joseph Cundall (1818–1895) and Robert Howlett (1831–1858) were professional associates commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1856 to photograph soldiers newly returned from war in the Crimea, the author believes that combined attribution should not be given to their work which is indeed clearly separated by style and circumstance. The depth and complexity of Howlett’s visual imagination is emphasized.

PH93–7487 Duchenne de Boulogne Le Méchanisme de la Physionomie Humaine.
MARLES, Hugh C.
History of Photography, Winter 1992, 16 (4), 395–6.
In the late 1850s Photography played an important part in G. B. Duchenne’s attempts to validate his theory of facial expression. Having produced a photograph of the whole face, Duchenne then reproduced strategically masked copies to demonstrate that an expression resulted from a localised movement. Photographs used in Le Méchanisme (1862) were done in collaboration with Adrien Tournachon, brother of Félix Nadar. The author suggests the art world was not receptive to Duchenne’s ideas about a relevance of his work to traditional forms of representation. Rather than Photography providing an absolute fidelity to nature, a view frequently expressed at the time was that it lacked the analytical and selective capacity of traditional art media.

Evidence is also presented that three small–format publications were produced as part of a single project not unrelated to the Queen’s album, but subsequent to it, was carried out by Furne fils and H. Tournieras in 1860–61. Appendix B (pp.36–7) lists stereo cards issued by Furne and Tournieras.

REIAKVAM, Oddlaug.
Norveg (Oslo), 1993, 35–52.
This article in Norweg, the journal of Norwegian ethnology and folklore studies, discusses the landscape photography of Jotunheimen mountain (now designated a National Park) by Knud Knudsen (1832–1915) “the writer in Light”. Discusses landscape photography as an element in the process of national construction, and how the photographer took part in the re–creation and taming of wild topography, transforming it into a national monument and landscape of experience. As a specific photographic project, the “landscaping” of the Jotunheimen can be seen as a continual process of visual selection, determining pictorial conventions for a perception of nature in national and touristic terms.

KAILBOURN, Thomas R.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 84–90.
Investigates a sixth–plate daguerreotype to establish the identity both of the man portrayed and of the daguerreotypist. It preserves the likeness in 1847 of a Sebastian D. Allis, born in Connecticut around 1821, who served in the US Mexican war as postmaster for his brigade at Vera Cruz. Only two daguerreotypists are known to have been there in 1847, Charles Betts only for about two weeks in April 1847, and George Noessel (born c1813 in Germany). It is likely to have been in Noessel’s studio that the portrait of Allis was taken and his short career as a daguerreoypist in New Orleans the previous year and in Vera Cruz in 1847 is studied. He is unlikely to have continued with photography after leaving Vera Cruz in December 1847.

Within the ethos of the Progressive Reform Movement current in the United States in the first decade of the 20th century, Lewis W. Hine (who himself when younger had worked long hours in a factory) photographed for the National Child Labor Committee between 1906 and 1918 which led to the passing of a law against exploitation of children. Yet, “Rather than Hine’s child–labour photographs as being manifestations of a shared social consciousness between the photographer and his subjects”, the author puts forward a notion that they depict working children and their
parents as “aberrant to a valorized middle–class norm”.

HAWORTH–BOOTH, Mark.
Independent (London), 18 Sept 1993, Magazine 30–7.
Review of the major retrospective exhibition of Bill Brandt’s photographs held at the Barbican in London, with 9 illustrations drawing attention to the great range of his work. The exhibition was widely noticed, with illustrations, in London newspapers: for example reviews by HALL, James, ‘An inner violence’, Guardian, 5 Oct 1993, suppl. 4–5, who characterised Brandt’s photojournalism as capturing the insignificant and commonplace to express the ills of society, and by CORK, Richard, ‘Snapshot of a nation’s soul’, in The Times, 1 October 1993, 37, who highlights this photographer as a surrealist rather than a documentary imagemaker.

PH93–7535 J.Lewis Baldwin, Thermoplastic Case Manufacturer.
BERG, Paul K.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 41–3.
Almost nothing is known about Baldwin except that he was listed as an “engraver” in Newark, New Jersey, USA in directories of that city from 1860 to 1871 and he obtained US patent No. 34,344 on 11 February 1862 for Improvement in Molds for making Daguereotype Cases. The patent specification describing his “improvements in dies for forming a screw in plastic material as a fastening for daguerreotype and other photographic cases”, and an accompanying diagram of his molds, is provided in full. Hitherto the origin of circular “oreo” thermoplastic cases has remained unattributed, but the author has two such cases having within them printed paper labels giving Baldwin’s name and date of his patent. Baldwin undoubted made “oreo” cases, and indeed may have been the sole supplier.

PH93–7539 Exposure measurement in 1937.
CORNWALL, James
Leica Fotographie International, 1993, (7), 19.
"About 50 Years ago about 350 million negatives were exposed in Germany each year at value of 25 million Reichmarks...about 15 % of all negatives were wrongly exposed...–a wastage of 4 milllion Reichmarks". A critic in the German Photographic industry observed that it would for this sum have been better to spend more on exposure meters. Yet it was not until 1939 that an exposure meter (LC60) tailor made to fit the Leica body appeared and from which subsequent Leicameter M series were derived after the second world war.

PH93–7559 Première reconstition du deuxième procédé photographique au monde.
MARIGNIER, Jean–Louis, assisté de MINANA, Michèle.
Le Photographe, Novembre 1992, (1499), 26–33.
Although this technique using the photosensitive residuum obtained by distilling Lavender Essence with development by the vapour of Petroleum Spirit was described by Daguerre in his Manual (published in September 1839) it has seemed of minor importance to historians in the past. [No name was given to this process in Daguerre’s manual, or indeed in Marignier’s article, but in a presentation of the same work on 30 June 1993 to a ESHPh symposium the author pointed out that Niépce suggested the term “Physautotype” (Page 2 of an abbreviated version of the text of Le Photographe article under a title of ‘Redécouverte de la Physautotypie inventée par Niépce et Daguerre en 1832’ issued at ESHPh symposium, Vilanova, Spain, 1993)]. This work, begun by Daguerre in 1830 and in collaboration with Niépce in 1832, is shown by Marignier to be important for our better understanding of the route by which the Daguerreotype was achieved. Pages 32–33 provide a detailed practical account of the technique as carried out by Marignier and Minana at Université Paris–Sud. About 9 hours exposure is required (such an image is shown in fig.7) providing a result very similar to a daguerreotype image.

PH93–7560 Daguerreian Fakes, Forgeries and Hoaxes.
ZUCKER, Harvey S.
The Daguerreian Annual 1993, 131–5.
An anecdotal talk given to Daguerreian Society Symposium at Columbus, Ohio, USA in October 1992 about the possibilities of coming across in the USA, daguerreian fakes (ie modern attempt to create a 19th century–daguerreian–like image), forgery (modern copy of a 19th century daguerreotype), or hoax (ie an attempt to pass off either of the foregoing as a genuine 19th century daguerreotype).

An account [limited to American sources] of the earliest use in American magazines and newspapers of the half–tone dot reproduction process. The introductory portion of this article emphasizes the part played by Steven H. Horgan at the New York Graphic.

PH93–7562 The Oxymel Process.
MORRIS, Richard.
PhotoHistorian, Winter 1992, (99),12–19; Spring 1993, (100), 11–9.
This 2–part article by Morris deals with the way John D. Llewelyn (1810–1882) in the last half of the 1850s modified the Collodion Process by use of acidified ‘Oxymel’ honey solution. Researched from published letters about the technique by Llewelyn, T.F. Hardwich and others in the Journal of the Photographic Society of London from 1856 to 1859. [In the mid 1850s various techniques were put forward to overcome a drawback that Archer’s epoque–making Collodion process although highly sensitive had to be immediately exposed, and developed, whilst still moist. Although much slower than the original unmodified wet technique, Taupenot’s method of using albumen with collodion and Dr Norris’s collodio–gelatine process were the most successful ways to obtain dry plates. Sugars in the form of Honey had also been tried in 1854 by English photographers G. Shadbolt and Maxwell Lyte to allow collodion plates to be prepared longer in advance.]

PH93–7566 John Bishop Hall. Inventor of the Hallotype.
MARDER, William and Estelle.
History of Photography, Autumn 1993, 17 (3), 308–11.
The major appeal of the Hallotype patented on 27 May 1856 was a stereoscopic effect produced by attaching a second picture behind a transparent photograph. A business venture with Hall in partnership with Jerimiah Gurney was set up in January 1857 to market the process and sell licences at 349 Broadway, New York. But five months later the partnership was dissolved. Hall and Gurney had also acquired the patents
rights to a much earlier similar method put forward by Minotti in Europe. The authors also write on C.F. Fredericks who was associated with Gurney and refer to other methods such as the sphereotype, ivorytype, and alabastrine process, used by other studio photographers to satisfy a taste of their customers for elaborated photographs in the years around 1860.
