Talbot, William Henry Fox

Los 4081

"Abbotsford" from Sun Pictures in Scotland. 24 Oct., 1844. Salt print from a calotype negative printed on Whatman paper, watermark J. WhatmanTurkey Mill 1840. 15,3 x 22 cm (18,4 x 23 cm). LA 27 in ink on the verso.

This image appeared as plate 3 in Sun Pictures in Scotland. Abbotsford was the home of Sir Walter Scott. Talbot's hope for commercial exploitation of his invention lay in the widespread distribution of large editions of photographic prints, the principal advantage of negative-positive process over the daguerreotype. In early 1844, in an effort to encourage the mass production of paper photographs, Talbot supported Nicolaas Henneman, his former valet, in the creation of a photographic printing establishment in Reading, a town on the route between London and his home in Lacock. The firm's initial project was Talbot's "Pencil of Nature", the first commercially published book illustrated with photographs. – Slight edge wear and fading in edges in margins, otherwise in very good condition.

Thompson, Charles Thurston
The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella in Spain

Los 4082

"The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella in Spain". 4 text p. and 1 l. "List of Photographs" with 20 albumen prints on plates (some foxing and chips/tears in edges) between circa 38 x 32 cm and 27 x 21 cm. Folio, original half canvas portfolio (time-stained, edges rubbed, spine with tears, dusty) with gilt-pressed title and printed title on cover. London, Arundel Society for Promoting the Knowledge of Art, 1868.

Charles Thurston Thompson's career was based at the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria and Albert Museum), where he was the superintendent of photography beginning in 1856, as well as the official photographer of the Department of Science and Art. Thompson left behind approximately ten thousand negatives when he died in 1868, however, original prints of his are quite rare. Soon after, the Arundel Society for Promoting the Knowledge of Art published twenty of his photographs taken in 1866 in the volume "The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella in Spain" as the one offered here. This publication is held by fewer than ten libraries in the United States, as well as a comparable copy in the British Library, London. It is a rare complete copy of this volume and a fine example of earlier architectural photography. – Plates 1-4 and plate 20 prints with stronger fading and foxing, some prints with fading in edges, several with strong contrasts and a rich dark brown tone.
