About this Item

First Edition. 38 pp; 7 figs. Bound in plain (original?) wrappers, housed in a later folder. Hunt's absence from the D.S.B. is surprising, given he wrote 'the first English paper on photography (Popular Treatise on the Art of Photography) in 1841,' (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts/KNAW Web site; the book was reprinted in 1973). 'Hunt also researched the use of iron sulfate for the development of photographic images and developed an improved cyanotype process which he called 'Chromo-Cyanotype'. Co-founder of the 'Photographic Society of London' in 1853' (KNAW). Bookseller Inventory # D00535
