William Henry Fox Talbot (1800–1877) is best known as an early inventor of photographic processes. For the first time, based on extensive new sources, this study examines Talbot's inventions in the context of his entire oeuvre. This makes possible new interpretations of his photographs, which the author views primarily as an instrument for his diverse scientific interests, and thus as part of a broader epistemic conception.

A greater emphasis is placed on preventive conservation, a trend among collecting institutions, which reflects the growing recognition that scarce resources are best expended on preventing deterioration, rather than on less effective measures of reversing it.

Author: Albert John Walford,Anthony Chalcraft,Marilyn Mullay,Priscilla Schlicke,Stephen Willis

Publisher: London : Library Association Publishing

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

What is a Book?

The Study of Early Printed Books

Author: Joseph A. Dane

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: N.A

Category: History

Page: 276

View: 4294

Among other issues, Dane addresses such basic questions as: How do students, bibliographers, and collectors discuss these things? And when is it legitimate to generalize on the basis of particular examples? Dane considers each issue in terms of a practical example or question a reader might confront: How do you identify books on the basis of typography? What is the status of paper evidence? How are the various elements on the page defined? What are the implications of the images available in an online database? And, significantly, how does a scholar's personal experience with books challenge or conform to the standard language of book history and bibliography? Dane's accessible and lively tour of the field is a useful guide for all students of book history, from the beginner to the specialist. "Written with wit and acuity, Joseph A. Dane's What Is a Book? extends his project of teaching aspects of book history to the specialist and nonspecialist reader alike.
