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

"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…"

"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…"

"I'd be most grateful to see the portraits, Dennis, but I doubt that they are the man portrayed in this carte-de-visite. Thanks for answering, and I look forward very much to confirming that your portraits really are the REAL Garibaldi.…"

"Hi, This is definitely Garibalidi. We have two stereoscopic portraits apparently taken on the same day and in the same studio in Dr. Brian May's Collection. I will fish them out and send you as much information as I can on those pictures. I…"

GARIBALDI - OR NOT GARIBALDI?

This carte-de-visite from my collection is titled ‘Guiseppe Garibaldi (From Life)’.I have three variant images from the same series by the photographer Z. Bioni of Marsala, Sicily.One example of the Garibaldi portrait by Bioni is held by the National Portrait Gallery in London. Bioni’s name appears in various British index lists, all of which refer to the cdv in the NPG collection, though no details of the photographer’s first name or activities are given, and he is totally unknown in Italy.Is…See More

michael g. jacob commented on Michael Pritchard's blog post Video: The curious era of death photography
"Disappointing commentary, and poor or non-existent analysis of the photographs chosen to illustrate the theme. One example - the cdv of Daniele Manin, is meaningless when taken out of its historical context. The leader of the Venetian revolt against…"

"There’s an extremely interesting and well-researched chapter entitled ‘Pavement Portraits’ in ‘The Victorians – Photographic Portraits” (Tauris Park Books, 1993) by Audrey Linkman. It includes a section on Beach…"

michael g. jacob replied to Paul Godfrey's discussion Beach Photographers
"Beach photography seems to have started pretty much with the advent of the railways and day trips to the sea, I would imagine. I have quite a few ambrotypes and tintypes of the genre, which I'll attach here. AMBRO_2 is particularly interesting,…"

"I agree with the argument laid out here. I live in Italy, and frequently vist London. I have managed to visit Bradford on one occasion only. It was ridiculously idealistic to site a national institution in such a remote setting. I look forward to…"
