Book Description:

Photographs of the Past: Process and Preservation

In recent years, interest in old photographs has grown significantly among a broad public, from collectors, conservators, and archivists to amateurs seeking to preserve precious family albums. Although the medium of photography is barely 150 years old, its relatively brief history has
witnessed the birth of a wide range of photographic processes, each of which poses unique conservation challenges.

Photographs of the Past: Processes and Preservation provides a comprehensive introduction to the practice of photograph preservation, bringing together more information on photographic processes than any other single source. Introductory chapters cover issues of terminology; the rest of the book is
divided into three parts: positives, negatives, and conservation. Each chapter focuses on a single process–daguerreotypes, albumen negatives, black-and-white prints, and so on–providing an overview of its history and materials and tracing the evolution of its technology. This book will serve as an
irreplaceable reference work for conservators, curators, collectors, dealers, conservation students, and photographers, as well as those in the general public seeking information on preserving this ubiquitous form of cultural heritage.
