Robert A. Sobieszek. British Masters of the Albumen Print: A Selection of Mid-Nineteenth-Century Victorian Photography. International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House & The University of Chicago Press, Chicago & London, 1976

Image Caption List

Note: The size and format of the carte-de-visite and the stereograph produced in England were highly standardized during this period. The carte-de-visite image was approximately 9 x 5.7 cm. on a mount of approximately 10x 6.5 cm. The single half of a stereograph was approximately 6.4 x 7.7 cm. on a mount of approximately 8 x 18 cm., and there are two side by side on this mount. Because of this standardization the size of such images is not indicated in the catalogue except in the case of unmounted single stereographs.
