Samples of Silver Print on Citro-Chloride of Silver Paper-negative, Silver Print on Citro-Chloride of Silver Paper-positive, Ordinary Blue Print - negative, Ordinary Blue Print - Positive, Red Prussiate of Potash Print, Direct Cyanotype, Ink Picture, Carbon Print, Uranium Print developed with Nitrate of Silver, and Uranium Print developed with Red Prussiate of Potash. Ink ownership inscription at top of title page and on free endpaper from J.C. Lewore of Cincinnati dated 1890. Ex-library copy with markings. Perforated library stamp affects all tipped-in samples (not as bad as it sounds).
