Information request: Letters of R. Child Bayley, editor of 'Photography'

I am currently engaged in research on the photographic network of R. Child Bayley (editor of the journal Photography) around 1904-1908. Does anyone know whether his letters or the files of the journal from that time are being kept somewhere? I tried contacting the offices of the current Amateur Photographer as it seems to be the post-post-post-successor of Photography, but had no luck so far. There are his letters to Alfred Stieglitz, that are kept in the Beinecke Library, but apart from that I…See More

Information request: digitisation of 19th century photographs on paper

I am looking for information about the best way to digitize 19th century photographs on paper. The Neue Pinakothek in Munich (Germany) has recently acquired a large collection of photographs from the nineteenth century. Processes range from early caloytpes (1840s) to Albumen prints and silver gelatine. At the moment tentative plans are being made to start a digitisation project.I am looking for information on the conservational requirements regarding light and heat that should be met.  These…See More

Catalogue of the RPS Exhibition 1918

I am looking for the catalogue of the RPS Exhibiton in 1918. Unfortunately, the only copy of the Photographic Journal of 1918 I have access to does not contain the catalogue, while the adjacent years do. Does anyone know whether there was and usually is a catalogue in the 1918 issue or not? Thanks in advance for you help,CarolineSee More

"Dear Mark, Dear Matthew, thank you for helping me with Salomon. Looks like Adam-Salomon is the one I was looking for. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. It is very much appreciated! Caroline"

Mark Jacobs replied to Caroline Fuchs's discussion "biograph picture" | A photographer named "Salomon"
"Caroline, I think Matthew Mawson is correct in suggesting that Antoine Samuel Adam-Salomon, (1818-1881) is probably the Salomon you're looking for. He studied photography with Franz Hanfstaengl in Munich in 1858 and was quite well-known during…"

Michael Pritchard replied to Caroline Fuchs's discussion "biograph picture" | A photographer named "Salomon"
"As I suspected the sentence referes to moving pictures. In this context the 'plain' appears to refer to black and white moving pictures as part of a comparison Tilney is making to colour in still photography. Michael."
