I always check books’ bibliographies when I am researching, and I found this book mentioned.
Brown, George E. Ferric and Heliographic Processes: A Handbook for Photographers, Draughtsmen, and Sun Printers. New York: Tennant & Ward, 1900 [First edition 1900, reprinted 1905, this edition n.d.)
I found it on Abebooks:
It’s under $10, a reprint/facsimile of the original that is well done.
Chapters are on cyanotype, kallitype obernetter, uranotype, Pellet process, ferro-gallic, etc. What is interesting is there is a small section on tricolor gum over cyanotype under the chapter entitled Ferro-Prussiate in Tricolor Work (go figure) and a W. E. Brewerton medalled at the RPS’s exhibition of 1898!
Has anyone seen his tricolor work in person?
