list. Later Cameron hired the Autotype Company to produce carbon prints for
Talbot of course set up a production line at Reading to mass produce
photographs for the first commercial book of photography, "The Pencil of

Unfortunately all of the Talbots are rather faded, and the Camerons have
terrible processing faults.... :-)
I quite like the idea of 'unlimited editions' though.
