Footnotes

  • An extremely scarce title, not found in Gernsheim's Incunabula nor ABPC, and of which we have been able to trace only one copy, in the National Library of Scotland. This "subscriber's copy" (so stated on the upper cover) appears to have belonged to the Rev. Bridges' daughter, and includes, loosely inserted, a prospectus for Bridges' Selections from Seventeen-Hundred Genuine Photographs (1852, Gernsheim 11), a section from a wrapper of the same, and most interestingly a salt print of tents before a pyramid, captioned on the mount in ink "Tent; many weeks inhabited by Mr Bridges". See illustration at page 180.
