in my quest to find out why it hardly caught on, the first mention was that it was a good substitute for albumen which was fading and spotting.

Yes I bought Sherer's book for $1 or something on Abebooks. Still in preliminary research mode so can't draw any conclusions about anything, but if I do find something interesting like cows with iron tails I will certainly dish the dirt!
