Michael Pritchard: Early descriptions of the process of photography.

Abstract: The announcement in Britain of photography’s invention was quickly followed by a proliferation of publications, some of them detailed expositions and some no more than a folded page, in which the new medium is described or promoted. This paper will trace the arc of these publications with a view to providing a history of photography in print.
