Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
More than 2,300 photobooks from the Charles Chadwyck-Healey collection including publications from Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray and Diane Arbus are included in this vast gift of photobooks to the Bodleian Library. The collection adds considerably to the photography holdings that includes William Fox Talbot’s Pencil of Nature (1844–46) – one of the earliest examples of a printed photobook.
According to the Bodleian's librarian Richard Ovenden an exhibition is planned but the collection is still being catalogued and that is the immediate priority.
