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

10 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 724 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
William Henry Fox Talbot : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by J. Paul Getty Museum( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1839 the almost simultaneous announcement of the discovery of photography was made by Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre (French, 1787-1851) in Paris and William Henry Fox Talbot (English, 1800-1877) in London. This volume traces Talbot's picture-making method, which proved to be the basis for later photography. Larry J. Schaaf, an independent photohistorian and research professor at the University of Glasgow and the director of the Correspondence of William Henry Fox Talbot Project, discusses approximately fifty of Talbot's images in the collection of the Getty Museum."--Jacket

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

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 224 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 )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 115 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
Die haufgehobene Zeit : die Erfindung der Photographie durch William Henry Fox Talbot by Hubertus von Amelunxen( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in German and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history and handbook of photography by Gaston Tissandier( Book )

6 editions published between 1878 and 1973 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wealth of illustrations makes this a very important book. Two photoglyphic engravings by Talbot which represent one of only about four publications with these prints; the Pumphrey plates with his detailed ad help pinpoint the prices charged for collotype printing at this time; the very unusual Amand-Durand relief heliographs of diatoms, a type of printing not usually associated with this firm; and the photogravure by Leitch, who used Garnier's method in England. These coupled with Talbot's and his son's texts regarding photography and photoglyphic engraving, make this a most important work."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 59
