Dear Mr Pellerin,
I am a PhD student with Prof. Kelley Wilder at the De Montfort University in Leicester, and she recommended I write to you in my search for materials related to Claudet's work with electrotyping and etching daguerreotypes. My project covers this topic on a large scale (in that I am trying to paint the bigger picture, including many practitioners), and I am hoping to track down as many original objects as possible. I have found a number of references to Claudet's work, both in publications as well as in correspondence, and it would be wonderful to hear if you have any information as to where I might find actual objects, be they etched or electrotyped plates or prints.
I would be happy to share the references that I have found so far with you, although I am certain that you will know these sources already.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the Garibaldi stereo information a few months ago. I am still working on it…
But I have a new question for you. Someone identified the strip in English on an Italian stereoview as being for an “English edition of a Gaudin et Frère view.”
I believe, instead, that this strip titling was used on early LSC views.
Have you seen such strips on views sold by LSC in the late 1850s?

Denis, does the LSC in its archives/library have any information about William England ? I am keen to do more research on him, especially to learn more about his commission whilst working for LSC to shoot HRH "Bertie" and Princess Alexandra!!
Hi Denis, I just re-subscribed to SW and received the latest issue a couple of days ago. I found you recent article fascinating as I have a couple of the Eastlake images but did not understand their significance. I look forward to reading the other articles in due course.
Have you written any other articles for Stereo World recently? I have back issues up to 2008 on DVD but would be interested to get other issues you have contributed to.
