Hi all!

I am so glad that after so many years being a rather “silent” member of our list , today I may also bring to you my very modest contribution!

My proposal for the 
“The Photograph Manual”, by N.G. Burgess (1862)
has already generated so many requests (15 +) that I am looking for an easy way to share it; anyway it is a too large file to be sent as an attached file with e-mail. So I shall very probably share it via a “cloud” site; it will be very probably Dropbox and I ‘ll letyou now as soon as I make it available. Sorry, I’m very busy these days and it may need 2 or 3 days before I come back to this subject.

Now, shame to me : I have not yet taken time to read this book and even to find for myself inspiration in these early processes!

Alternative cheers fromFrance

Hi Jean,

I would be very interested in a copy of the PDF version of The Photograph Manual by N.G. Burgess.  I teach the albumen process in a small art college ( New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH).  All photography majors are required to take a Handmade Photography class .  . Students work on three processes, cyanotypes, albumen and palladium.  Many love the look of their albumen prints. They also enjoy the day We all crack lots of eggs. I really love spreading the knowledge of the early processes.
