Records of the Dawn of Photography.
Talbot's Notebooks P & O.


Scientific notebooks of Henry Fox Talbot. Transcribed and annotated by Larry Schaaf.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1996. 413 pp., Notebook pages reproduced as halftone illustrations., 10x10".

Until Henry Fox Talbot invented the negative process, photography was an art of precious, nique objects. Records presents, for the first time, direct photographic reproductions of the scientific notebooks Talbot kept as he was narrowing in on his goal. The texts are not only interesting as a record of the first "alternative process," but as a drama of discovery.
