About This Book This historic record of state-of-the-art photography as it was in the late 19th and early 20th century contains a surprisingly large amount of amount of information the is still relevant and used today. Many of the basic ideas and methods described are still applicable more than a hundred years later. For me the most powerful impression when looking through this book is of how many skills and technical proficiencies were expected of a photographer in those pioneering days. You needed to be a pretty good chemist to mix up your own plate coatings, developers, fixatives and hundreds of other mixtures - a hazardous procedure as some of the chemicals included things like potassium cyanide. It certainly makes you realise how easy things are for the photographer today.

The pages for these dictionary were produced by scanning and OCR, a sadly imperfect art, so I hope the few oddities you will find do not spoil your enjoyment.
