The British Journal Photographic Almanacs
The present Almanac first appeared in the form of a wall calendar
for the year 1860 and was distributed as a supplement to the "British
Journal of Photography" of December 15, 1859. The Almanac
in book form was issued as a gift to subscribers of the publication
until 1866 when it was sold exclusively as a separate publication.
It is an extraordinary resource for those interested in the historical
development of photography. Each issue included informative articles
on photographing different subjects, processing techniques, new
products, tables, and miscellaneous information. Later copies
included a section of photogravure reproductions of modern works
by leading exhibitors. The publication also contains many ads
for photographic equipment thus providing useful information for
those interested in dating pieces of equipment as well as providing
insight into the evolution of advertising. We have a small selection
of these Almanacs for sale. Their condition varies but all interior
pages are clean and intact.
