Specimens and marvels : William Henry Fox Talbot and the invention of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication focuses on Talbot's ambitions for the mystical blend of science and art he termed "photogenic drawing" (later called" photography"), as outlined in his classic volume The Pencil of Nature. In addition to familiar icons from photography's beginnings, such as Talbot's cameraless photograms of plant forms and lace, and his photographs of Lacock Abbey, the twelfth-century stone building in which he lived and worked, many unseen and little-known experiments with calotypes will be featured in this invaluable new volume on the life and work of Talbot. Lively and insightful texts offer new critical perspectives on Talbot's significance in the history of image-making, the illustrated book, and the history of ideas."--BOOK JACKET

Records of the dawn of photography : Talbot's notebooks P & Q by Larry J Schaaf( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first publication of the two most important notebooks created by William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-77), the inventor of negative/positive photography. Henry Talbot preserved the eighteenth century tradition of the gentleman amateur scientist in the face of increasing professionalization of science and technology in the nineteenth century. He had great powers of imagination and often conceived of things well beyond his present ability to execute. Notebooks P and Q span the period from the first public announcement of photography in 1839 through the 1843 plateau of Talbot's researches. They record both his false starts and his triumphs. While the emphasis is on the new art of photography, there is substantial reference to chemistry, electricity, light, optics and railroad motive power. The notebook pages are reproduced in full, preserving the tempo and organization of Talbot's thoughts, and keeping his sketches in context. A full expanded transcription decodes Talbot's sometimes difficult hand and abbreviations. Extensive notes and scholarly apparatus interpret and establish the context of Talbot's work."--Jacket
