Does anyone have any information about the Egerton brothers, Jeremiah and John, who were the subject of litigation by Richard Beard in 1845? I have read what’s available (R. D. Wood, et al), but I am…Continue

"Dear Rebecca, the 'Garibaldi' appears to be an untinted print of the sterescopic portrait posted above by Denis Pellerin (see the third reply to the discussion, and look at the scans). It is not a cut-out from a newspaper, but an albumen…"

"HI Mike, below picture of Victoria and family photographed by Mayall is also pasted in the album and might be of the same source of newspaper as the "Garibaldi" portrait. Maybe this helps, too. Best regards, Rebecca"

"Yes dear Michael, I was thinking to Pietro Becchetti... Have you got a name for Bioni? There are few places, here in Milan, where I can try to have a look!"

"Hi Michael! I’m sorry but unfortunatlly I really havent the faintest idea. If you tell me that the photographer is British I can’t even suggest you anything. If he is Italian there was in Rome a very nice old, not too in shape, I wonder…"

"No, he isn't Garibaldi for me. I'm Italian, I've seen thousands of photos of him... He is not. In my humble opinion."

"Wow! Fascinating. This stereo view is totally new to me. And it does appear to be the same Garibaldi wannabe! His hair and beard seem to have grown a little bit, so not a one-off session, perhaps. It is beautifully coloured, and must look great in a…"

Denis Pellerin replied to michael g. jacob's discussion GARIBALDI - OR NOT GARIBALDI?
"Hi Michael, you are right. It cannot be Garibaldi. The features, especially the eyes, do not match at all. Interesting that the caption on your card says it is Garibaldi and that the card was sold as being a portrait from life. Could he be a…"

Have you got a name for Bioni? There are few places, here in Milan, where I can try to have a look!

Hi Michael! I’m sorry but unfortunatlly I really havent the faintest idea. If you tell me that the photographer is British I can’t even suggest you anything. If he is Italian there was in Rome a very nice old, not too in shape, I wonder if he’s still alive, man who wrote several books e n Italian photographers mid XIX century. If you are interested I can try to find his name...
