Abstract

The publications on the principles and practice of Photography are already numerous, and many of them are
written with perspicuity and method, so as to form excellent
Vade-mecums for the student, whether he may have prosecuted
the art for professional gain, or yielded to its
delightful and seducing influence as an amateur. My
present purpose is not, therefore, to give a history of Photography,
or such an elaborate description of its principles
as would involve a consideration of the theory of light and
of the laws of optics and of practical chemistry, but only
to make public, through the means of the Society, the process
which I have myself employed in the production of a
few calotype views of Hobart Town, &c., submitted for
inspection at a late meeting of the Society.
