The photographic art of William Henry Fox Talbot by Larry J Schaaf( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawn from public and private collections throughout the world, the one hundred color plates are reproduced in the actual size of the originals and in all the subtle hues that comprised Talbot's early work. While a number of Talbot's most famous images are included, many of the photographs are little known and are reproduced in this volume for the first time. They range from Talbot's Lilliputian pre-1839 negatives (made in "mouse trap" cameras) through botanical photograms to mid-1840s calotypes that demonstrate a sure command of the new art. Each plate is discussed in detail, drawing on important new research the author has conducted in preparation for a catalogue raisonne of Talbot's life's work in photography."--Jacket

Impressed by light : British photographs from paper negatives, 1840-1860 by Roger Taylor( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated book tells the first full history of the calotype, embedding it in the social context that crucially formed it: Britain's changing fortunes, intricate class structure, ever-growing industrialization, and new spirit under Queen Victoria. Of the 118 early photographs presented here in meticulously printed plates, many have never before been published or exhibited. And the histories of 500 calotypists, most previously unknown, are detailed in the volume's biographical dictionary, a valuable work of far-reaching scholarship the further demonstrates the major role played by the paper negative in mid-nineteenth-century Britain."--Book jacket

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

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 227 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
Hikari no jinen = Nature of light by Hiroshi Sugimoto( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of photographs that pay homage to the work of photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot. Titled "Photogenic Drawing", these photographs were printed from paper negatives produced by Talbot 170 years ago. Sugimoto has effectively played variations on the original scores provided by Talbot's negatives, transferring to a different medium images that would otherwise disappear and be lost to obscurity. "Lightening Fields "are prints in which the light is burned in directly by applying electrical current to the film. The inspiration for this technique comes from "aborted discharge" experiments by Talbot. To create "Lightning Fields", Sugimoto ran electric current directly over the film and printed the results. This series is also related to Talbot since it recalls the experiments that he carried ou - and eventually discontinued - with electrical discharge in his work as a scientist
