Joseph Boudreau published an extensive and well-documented account of his
recreation of Hillotypes in Chapter 18 of:
Ostroff, E., Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers., et al.
(1987). Pioneers of photography : their achievements in science and
technology. Springfield, VA, SPSE--The Society for Imaging Science and
Technology : Distributed by Northeastern University Press.
I purchased this book several years ago from Northeastern-- it was at that
time otherwise considered out-of-print, though it wasn't-- it's just that
the University did not distribute it.

Subject: RE: Hill
I would be really interested in the reference which revealed Hill's Color
Dag process to be a fraud.
The Daguerrian Society published a papper in which some people claimed to
have produced color dags by Hill's process. It included some photos which
looked fairly conviencing. I have always been skeptical about the Hill
process because I cannot think of a wqay in which the colors could be
generated. Also, as I recall, Hill never did give specific directions on
how to make color dags. One think I might mention is that if you over expose
a Dag you will get a beautiful bright blue in the highlights (see my web
page), but there is a physical reason for this.
