PRAKTISCHE ANWEISUNG ZUR DAGUERREOTYPIE - Uhlenhut, L. (udwig) E. (duard) - 1845. [1219542]
Quedlinburg and Leipzig: Druck und Verlag von Gottfr. Basse, 1845. First ed. 8vo., 72 pp., folding frontispiece. Later paper over boards with panel of the original printed front wrapper mounted on front. Some leaves have small closed tears, chips, creases. Still very good. Calling upon the latest journal articles and texts from England, France and Germany, the author provides a concise description of the Daguerreian process to date, with descriptions of cyanotype and other paper processes. The last pages include priced lists of materials offered by the firms of Lerebours, and Voightlander and adverts for new publications related to photography and optics. Although listed by Roosens and Salu (#2868) A HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF BOOKS, and Heidtmann, Bressemann and Krauss (#3585) GERMAN PHOTOGRAPHIC LITERATURE, 1839 - 1978, OCLC locates no copies of this seemingly unique 1845 first edition; it does locate five copies of the 1849 second edition at: SACHSISCHE LANDESBIBLIOTHEK, STAATSBIBLIOTHEK ZU BERLIN, ULB SACHSEN ANHALT ZENTRALE, and two copies at the BRITISH LIBRARY. A reprint of the 1849 edition was issued in 1993 by the Stuttgart bookseller, H. Lindemann in an edition of 999 copies.
