About this book

Care and Identification of 19th-Century Photographic Prints contains everything one needs to:
- approximately date a print
- correctly catalogue by print type
- provide a safe enclosure
- recognise forms of deterioration
- store, handle, and display prints safely
- manage the preservation of a large collection
- deal knowledgeably with a professional conservator

Over the years, archivists, curators, librarians, and many others who care for and care about historical photographs have used this important publication as their complete reference handbook on all aspects of the identification and preservation of 19th-century photographic and photomechanical prints. The text presents technical information in plain, understandable language and is supported throughout by high-quality colour reproductions showing the various print types and their forms of deterioration. The fine details of print structure are pictured in numerous photomicrographs.

A key feature of Care and Identification of 19th-Century Photographic Prints is its practical, detailed system for 19th-century print identification. The pull-out flowchart that comes with each book is an important component in this system. The front of the chart gives step-by-step guidance for identifying major print types. The reverse side of the chart shows examples of each print type and gives dates of use.
