Talbot, William Henry Fox
Abbotsford

Los 4081

"Abbotsford" from Sun Pictures in Scotland. 24 Oct., 1844. Salt print from a calotype negative printed on Whatman paper, watermark J. WhatmanTurkey Mill 1840. 15,3 x 22 cm (18,4 x 23 cm). LA 27 in ink on the verso.

This image appeared as plate 3 in Sun Pictures in Scotland. Abbotsford was the home of Sir Walter Scott. Talbot's hope for commercial exploitation of his invention lay in the widespread distribution of large editions of photographic prints, the principal advantage of negative-positive process over the daguerreotype. In early 1844, in an effort to encourage the mass production of paper photographs, Talbot supported Nicolaas Henneman, his former valet, in the creation of a photographic printing establishment in Reading, a town on the route between London and his home in Lacock. The firm's initial project was Talbot's "Pencil of Nature", the first commercially published book illustrated with photographs. – Slight edge wear and fading in edges in margins, otherwise in very good condition.
