        6 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS BY CARROLL in The Henry Benyon Crichton Photograph Album of 54 photographs.

      This album of 54 early photographs includes six that are definitely known to be by Carroll, three that are "most probably" by Carroll and five that are "possibly" by Carroll - this according to Edward Wakeling (co-author of 'Lewis Carroll Photographer') who prepared a report on this album in 2003. FULL DETAILS & PHOTOGRAPHIC FILES CAN BE SENT ON REQUEST. * The six confirmed Carroll photographs are: 1) Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), assisted self portrait, taken on 2 June 1857 taken in the Deanery garden, Christ Church, image number 235. "Carroll was assisted in this self portrait by Lorina Liddell. He noted in his Journal for 2nd June 1857: "To try the lens, I took a picture of myself for which Ina took off the cap, and of course considered it all her doing!"" Taylor and Wakeling, p.177. This example has been trimmed to make a head-and-shoulders image. There are four other known original images of this photograph. 2) Osborne Gordon (1813-1883), MA Christ Church, taken by Carroll on either 3 or 4 July 1860, image number 595. "Gordon was Senior Censor, Reader in Greek and Rhetoric at Christ Church. There are two other known original images of this photograph. 3) Edward Stokes (1823-1863), MA Christ Church, taken by Carroll in June 1857, image number 217. There are three other known original images of this photograph.4) Thomas Jones Prout (1823-1909), MA Christ Church, taken by Carroll in June 1857, image number 238. There are three other known original images of this photograph:5) Thomas Vere Bayne (1829-1908), MA Christ Church, taken by Carroll during the spring of 1857, image number 181. Bayne was a lifelong friend of Carroll's. There are three other known original images of this photograph. 6) Charles Carr Clerke (1799-1877), DD Christ Church, taken by Carroll during the spring of 1857, image number 180. Clerke was Sub-Dean at Christ Church (1852) and chaplain to the Bishop of Winchester 1869-73. There is one other known original image of this photograph. * Because Carroll often printed very few copies of his photographs and his own records inexact, firm authentification of some photographs through comparison with another known example is impossible. However, the following photographs in the Crichton album would appear to Wakeling to be comparable with known Carroll photographs. In his opinion, they are most probably by Carroll: 1. Christ Church Tom Quad, with figures by Tom Gate, 224 x 176mm. 2. View across Christ Church Tom Quad looking towards the North Range, 171 x 225mm. 3. Portrait of Acland, 182 x 138mm. There are 5 further photographs - all portraits - that use a sitter's chair that also has featured in known Carroll photographs, and therefore could also possibly be by Carroll. FULL DETAILS AND IMAGES OF ALL THE 54 PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE ALBUM WILL BE SENT ON REQUEST.
