Introduction 
  
897.01   Publications, books, manuals, journals and magazines >  An introduction to tipped-in photographs in books 
  
Prior to the introduction of photo-mechanical methods, such as the Woodburytype and the halftone, for printing photographs they had to be chemically developed and bound as a whole page or "tipped-in".[1] A tipped-in photograph is glued to a book page sometimes on paper with accompanying pre-printed letterpress.
 
Early photographically illustrated books by pioneers such as Anna Atkins,[2] Henry Fox Talbot[3] and [4] all used this approach. There were also far rarer examples of stereo photographs being included in books and early examples include Teneriffe - An Astronomer’s Experiment (1857) by Charles Piazzi Smyth,[5] The Conway in the Stereoscope (1860) by Roger Fenton[6] and The Abbeys, Castles, and Scenery of Clonmel and the Surrounding Countryside (1860) by William Despard Hemphill.[7]

In 1841 an Irish botanist William Henry Harvey (1811-1866) published A Manual of the British Algae, the book lacked illustrations making identification difficult and its utility limited.[8] Anna Atkins knew of the cyanotype process through her family acquaintance Sir John Herschel and she recognised that it could provide illustrations of the specimens.
 
The first installment of the self-published Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions by Anna Atkins[9] was issued in October 1843 preceding the first part of Pencil of Nature by Henry Fox Talbot by eight months and therefore making it the first book illustrated by photographs.
 
As each cyanotype was hand-printed the labour in the construction of the books was considerable and the surviving copies vary in the number of plates included.

Whilst the announcement of the daguerreotype in 1839 was a stimulus to the work of Henry Fox Talbot[10] it was he who fully appreciated to range of possibilities and there was no other photographer or innovator who expressed it as well. His book The Pencil of Nature was visionary in so many ways - Talbot appreciated the advantage of a negative / positive process and provided exemplars of how photography could be used for distinct purposes. Nothing says it clearer than his own words:
The Pencil of Nature
Introductory Remarks
 
The little work now presented to the Public is the first attempt to publish a series of plates or pictures wholly executed by the new art of Photogenic Drawing, without any aid whatever from the artist's pencil.
 
The term “Photography” is now so well known, that an explanation of it is perhaps superfluous; yet, as some persons may still be unacquainted with the art, even by name, its discovery being still of very recent date, a few words may be looked for of general explanation.
 
It may suffice, then, to say, that the plates of this work have been obtained by the mere action of Light upon sensitive paper. They have been formed or depicted by optical and chemical means alone, and without the aid of any one acquainted with the art of drawing. It is needless, therefore, to say that they differ in all respects, and as widely us possible, in their origin, from plates of the ordinary kind, which owe their existence to the united skill of the Artist and the Engraver.
 
They are impressed by Nature's hand; and what they want as yet of delicacy and finish of execution arises chiefly from our want of sufficient knowledge of her laws. When we have learnt more, by experience, respecting the formation of such pictures, they will doubtless be brought much nearer to perfection; and though we may not be able to conjecture with any certainty what rank they may hereafter attain to as pictorial productions, they will surely find their own sphere of utility, both for completeness of detail and correctness of perspective.
 
The Author of the present work having been so fortunate as to discover, about ten years ago, the principles and practice of Photogenic Drawing, is desirous that the first specimen of an Art, likely in all probability to be much employed in future, should be published in the country where it was first discovered. And he makes no doubt that his countrymen will deem such an intention sufficiently laudable to induce them to excuse the imperfections necessarily incident to a first attempt to exhibit an Art of so great singularity, which employs processes entirely new, and having no analogy to any thing in use before. That such imperfections will occur in a first essay, must indeed be expected. At present the Art can hardly be said to have advanced beyond its infancy—at any rate, it is yet in a very early stage—and its practice is often impeded by doubts and difficulties, which, with increasing knowledge, will diminish and disappear. Its progress will be more rapid when more minds are devoted to its improvement, and when more of skilful manual assistance is employed in the manipulation of its delicate processes; the paucity of which skilled assistance at the present moment the Author finds one of the chief difficulties in his way.[11]

Slideshow 
  
William Henry Fox Talbot , one of the inventors of photography, was one of the first to produce a book that included landscape photographs.
 
In autumn 1844 he took a trip to Scotland where he photographed locations that were associated with Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), the author of the popular Waverley novels, and Talbot‘s visit to Edinburgh may have coincided with the completion of the Scott Monument.
 
The photographs that Talbot took in Scotland included the Scott Monument, Abbotsford, Melrose Abbey, Dryburgh Abbey and Loch Katrine. The Scottish mountains of the Trossachs and the waters of Loch Katrine had inspired Sir Walter Scott‘s popular poem The Lady of the Lake (1810) and this was the reason for the selection of the site by Fox Talbot. His photograph of the loch stands out as a particularly fine example of early British landscape photography.
 
The one guinea book Sun Pictures in Scotland was sold by subscription and 120 copies were bound. One of the original handwritten lists of subscribers is preserved at the NMPFT in Bradford (UK).

Anna Atkins,[13] who had already privately published and distributed the first book ever produced using photographic illustrations Photographs of British algae: cyanotype impressions (1843 onwards),[14] collaborated with Anne Dixon on further, and rarer, publication was privately published Cyanotypes of British and Foreign Flowering Plants and Ferns.[15] As each cyanotype was created by hand the quality of the prints varied and at times improved versions were supplied to replace earlier ones. This means that the numbers of plates in the different copies varies considerably.

About this photographer | Photographs by this photographer

Slideshow 
  
Charles Piazzi Smyth[16] became the Astronomer Royal for Scotland in 1845 and during a trip to South Africa he had the distinction of being the first calotypist in the country. In 1856 he made a voyage to Tenerife to assess its possibilities as an observatory.[17] The results of his observations were published in Teneriffe - An Astronomer's Experiment (1858) which included stereoviews.[18] A contemporary review of this volume was published in Notes and Queries on 31st October 1857:
Stereoscopic Book Illustrations. Mr. C. Piazzi Smith's forthcoming account of his Astronomical Expedition to the Peak of Teneriffe is to be illustrated by twenty, double vignette photo-stereographs. This is such an important step in the application of photography to book illustration that we must quote the publisher's remarks upon the subject.
 
"The publisher, anxious as the author to put all the actual facts of nature in the elevated regions that were visited as completely as possible before the public, has been earnestly at work for some time past, and has now succeeded in maturing plans for illustrating the letterpress with a series of photo-stereographs, which will be found to do neither more nor less than veritable reproductions of the scenes themselves.
 
"This method of book-illustration never having been attempted before, may excuse a word on this part of the subject. By its necessary faithfulness, a photograph of any sort must keep a salutary check on the pencil or longbow of the traveller; but it is not perfect; it may be tampered with, and may suffer from accidental faults of the material. These, which might sometimes produce a great alteration of meaning in important parts of a view, may, however, be eliminated, when, as here, we have two distinct pictures of each object
 
"Correctness is thus ensured; and then if we wish to enjoy the effects either of solidity or of distance, effects which are the cynosures of all the great painters, we have only to combine the two photographs stereoscopically, and those bewitching qualities are produced. Stereographs have not hitherto been bound up, as plates, in a volume; yet that will be found a most convenient way of keeping them, not incompatible with the use of the ordinary stereoscope, provided it is glazed at the base with clear in place of ground glass, and well adapted for a new form of the instrument, which the publisher anticipates being able to produce at a very moderate cost, under the name of the ' Book Stereoscope.'
 
"The plates, though packed up between the flat boards of a book, will appear on examination to have all the solidity, and all the appearance of distance, that the spectator could have acquired from viewing the scenes themselves."[19]
He traveled widely and wrote Three Cities in Russia (1862)[20] and during his visit he took some of the earliest street photographs. In 1865 he traveled to Egypt to measure the Great Pyramid[21] and he took the earliest known photographs inside the monument some of these were reproduced in his book Our Inheritance in the Great Pyramid.[22]

Richard Banner Oakeley, The Pagoda of Hallibeed[23], (London: Published by Thomas M'Lean, 1859).
 
In late 1856 on the recommendation of a 'Dr. Neill, of the 1st Madras Light Cavalry' Oakeley set out to photograph the Holysaleswara Temple, a magnificent example of Hindu architecture and sculpture begun during the first half of the 12th century. The journey involved a march of some twenty days, 'along the most miserable cross country roads conceivable' before reaching the temple:
'Having seen a great number of the most celebrated Pagodas in the South of India, I can unhesitatingly assert, it far surpasses any, even the most gorgeous of these beautiful structures.'
 
'Having a Photographic Apparatus with me, I lost no time in committing to waxed paper faithful representations of almost every portion of the Sculpture.' Despite working under very difficult circumstances and having lost 'a considerable portion' of his photographic equipment on the march to the temple, Oakeley here presents a range of images that demonstrate his consummate skill at composition. The images are all the more remarkable when one considers that these were Oakeley's first attempts 'at Photographing in a hot climate'.
Between 1854 and 1857, four photographers are known to have made the difficult journey to Halebid: Linneaus Tripe, William H. Pigou, Andrew Charles Brisbane Neil and Richard Banner Oakeley. According to Janet Dewan, "Oakley's series is the most interesting photographically".[24]

Little is known about Henry Moulton other than the photographs he took in Peru in around 1863. Seventy of the photographs are included in the book Rays of sunlight from South America[36] published in Washington in 1865 with the negatives credited to Moulton and the tipped-in positive albumen prints credited to Alexander Gardner.[37] The book was an expensive publication at the time costing $150 a copy in the USA or £25 in Great Britain. The photographs mainly show Lima and the Chincha Islands that were a key source of guano for fertiliser. The conditions for the convict labour and Chinese workers who worked on the vast guano mountains was hellish in the extreme.
 
The Chincha islands are of historical importance as they were seized by Spain in 1864 - an event that led to the "Guano War" or the "Chincha Islands War" (1865-1866) with Spain against Peru and Chile. Guano was also a factor in the later "War of the Pacific" (1879-1884).[38]

Francis Frith is best known for his views of Egypt, his photographically-illustrated books on Egypt, Sinai and Palestine[39] and the company he established that became a major seller of postcards and illustrated books on different regions especially within Great Britain. Frith had also used his photographs to illustrate editions of the Holy Bible.[40]
 
In 1865 Francis Frith spent six weeks travelling down the Rhine viewing the landscapes and visiting the cities and points of interest along the way in Switzerland, Austria and Germany.[41] He used the photographs he took along the route to illustrate the novel Hyperion by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow which had been published in 1839 by Samuel Coleman, incidently 1839 was the year photography publicly announced. In the novel the fictional character Paul Flemming travels through Germany whilst pondering his own revelations on nature, romanticism and his religious belief. The passages within the novel led Longfellow enthusiasts to use it as a travel guide to accompany them on their own journeys within Germany. The photographs of Francis Frith attempt to capture both the locations and the mood of the novel.

During the American Civil War (1861-1865) vast numbers of photographs were taken but there are few illustrated works as well known as highly regarded as Gardner‘s Photographic Sketchbook of the War[42] compiled by Alexander Gardner. The two volume album contained 100 albumen prints in total with 50 tipped in plates in each volume accompanied by a descriptive text possibly by Alexander Gardner. The book was published by Philp & Solomons (Washington) in two editions, one thought to have been published in 1865 and the other in 1866. More recent research by Anne E. Peterson (Curator of Photographs, DeGolyer Library, Southern Methodist University) now indicates that both editions came out in 1866.
 
Within public collections the same plate can have different photographers assigned to it and a level of confusion can occur. This is partly because of the way the work was created with the negative being taken by one photographer, the print made by another and the copyright registered by a third. The text printed on the first plate "Marshall House, Alexandria, Virginia" highlights this:
"Negative by Wm. R. Pyrell. August 1862. Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1865, by A. Gardner, in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court of the District of Columbia. Incidents of the War. Marshall House, Alexandria, VA. Published by Philp & Solomons, Washington. Positive by A. Gardner, 511 7th St., Washington"
These original records are not always accurate and to find the actual photographer who took the negative it is advisable to check with:
 
Alexander Gardner with the introduction by E.F. Bleiler (1959) Gardner‘s Photographic Sketch Book of the Civil War (New York: Dover Publications)
 
The solid introduction by E.F. Bleiler and reproductions of all the plates makes this the most authoritative source on this series. Where there are discrepancies between different sources I have attempted to highlight them but I always welcome additional research to ensure accuracy and completeness.
 
The exact number of copies of the Photographic Sketchbook of the War sold is not known but is thought to be between 125 and 200 copies and there are complete sets at George Eastman House and Cornell University Library both of which have copies on the Internet. Because there was no way of printing the photographs directly onto the pages the 100 photographs for each set were made individually and then affixed to the pages. This was both laborious and expensive and the two volume sold for $150 a set when they were published in the 1860s a vast sum of money at the time.

In France there was an interest in using photography as an aid to botanical illustration and the book by Eugène Charles de Gayffier on the wild herbs of France - Herbier Forestier de la France (1867) – is an example of this activity.[43] A note in a 2013 auction lot stated that:

The preface to Thomas H. Dyer's The Ruins of Pompeii. A Series of Eighteen Photographic Views (1867) reads:
In works like the present the usual practice is reversed - the letter-press is made subservient to the illustrations ; and these, especially when they consist of photographs, must be left to the selection of artists. Hence, views may sometimes be chosen for their pictorial effect rather than their fitness to illustrate the subject in hand. Nevertheless, from the necessary truthfulness of photographic pictures, it is hoped that the present volume may, with the aid of some engravings, convey a good general idea of Pompeii.[45]

There are very few known copies of this series by Alexander Gardner (1821-1882) and the number of albumen prints included seems to vary. The front cover of this volume is entitled simply Ogallalla Sioux.[48] However, a copy of the series came up for auction at Sotheby‘s Sale of "The Frank T. Siebert Library of the North American Indian and the American Frontier" collection in New York on October 28, 1999 which had the fuller title:
Photographs of Red Cloud and Principal Chiefs of Dacotah Indians Taken on Their Visit to Washington, D.C., May, 1872 (Washington D.C.: for Trustees of Blackmore Museum, Salisbury, England, [Gibson Brothers, Printers, 1872])
The volume has a rather intriguing history that is worthy of note. William Henry Blackmore was an English financier, philanthropist and founder of the Blackmore Museum in Salisbury (Wiltshire, UK). His commercial interests in the United States included mining ventures, railways and land speculation that brought him into contact with Native Americans. Blackmore developed a passionate interest in Native American cultures and realized the importance of documenting their societies.. Accordingly, he commissioned noted Civil War photographer, Alexander Gardner,[49] to photograph Native American delegations visiting Washington D.C. This portfolio, Ogallalla Sioux, records the delegation of Red Cloud (Mahpíya Lúta), who visited Washington, DC from May 25 to June 3, 1872. Gardner took this series and in one of the photographs (not included in this volume) Red Cloud is seated with a standing William Blackmore shaking his hand in respect and friendship.[50]
 
Soon afterwards Blackmore financed and then accompanied Ferdinand V. Hayden on his 1872 survey expedition of the Yellowstone region. Early in the summer of 1872, Mary Blackmore contracted pneumonia and died in Bozeman, Montana. Hayden named Mt. Blackmore in her honor.
 
The encroachments on Indian lands resulted in increasing hostilities, and only four years later General George Custer (1839-1876) would lead his forces into the Black Hills of Dakota to resounding defeat. Red Cloud was a well known chief but he did not join Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull in their ill-fated attempts to protect their rights.

William Bradford was a popular artist, traveler and Arctic explorer. His book The Arctic Regions, Illustrated with Photographs Taken on an Art Expedition to Greenland[51] is one of a classic work of photographic history and arctic exploration. The photographs in his book are usually credited to John Dunmore and George Crichterson but it is now believed that Bradford took many of the photographs himself.
 
The context for the book was given in a lot description by Swann Galleries:
William Bradford, a popular American artist, was a traveler and adventurer fascinated with the Arctic landscape. His magnificent volume, "The Arctic Regions," the result of six expeditions to the area, is considered a landmark in the history of the photographically illustrated book. Sumptuously bound and profusely illustrated with original photographs, the text combined sober scientific observation with romantic hyperbole. It features 141 spectacular albumen photographs, including a 2-part panorama, which set it apart from other accounts that were illustrated with engravings. The Art Journal of London hailed the publication as "the most instructive work on the frozen seas that has ever appeared."
 
Working under Bradford''s supervision were John Dunmore and George Crichterson, photographers associated with the prominent firm, James Wallace Black Studio, in Boston. Although these men are credited with the photographs it is now believed that Bradford himself may have taken many of the pictures, which feature remarkable scenes of icebergs and ice floes in addition to pictures of indigenous people ("Eskimaux") and moored ships.
 
A source of great interest throughout the nineteenth century, the Arctic blossomed in the public imagination, manifesting itself through a widespread desire for images, stories, and interpretations of the seemingly desolate area. The images in "The Arctic Region" depict views of an alien, frozen land and its exotic inhabitants.
 
Recounting his voyage, Bradford described working under adverse conditions. The harsh weather often caused major setbacks and annoyances among the ship''s crew. Dunmore also described a dangerous instance in which both their equipment and lives were at stake: "We sailed about sixty miles to the mouth of a glacier, where the icebergs break off, to take some views. Just as we were landing a large berg broke off which sent the water up twenty feet all over us, and washed away collodion, developing glass, green baize, etc., and came very near taking is along with them." Yet, despite these challenges, they produced remarkable photographs of a stunning, and now endangered, landscape. The volume is a tribute to Bradford''s heroic vision and the photographers who skillfully worked in the most difficult of circumstances.[52]

Edward Bierstadt (1824-1906) was an engraver and photographer of landscapes and portraits and the brother of the painter Albert Bierstadt. on 17 November 1875 Edward Bierstadt filed a US Patent for Improvement in stereoscopes which was granted on 21 March 1876. The patent was for a method of adding stereoviews into books with eyeglasses built in to allow for their viewing.[53] His book Gems of American Scenery, consisting of Stereocopic Views among the White Mountains, [1878][54] included stereoviews of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, an area that had been photographed by dentist, and amateur daguerreotypist, Samuel A. Bemis in the early 1840s.

Dr Guillaume-Amant Duchenne de Boulogne (1806-1875) was assisted by the photographer Adrien Tournachon (1825-1903) in photographing the results of his neurophysiological studies of the face. Dr Duchenne applied electrical shocks to different facial muscles to study their relationships in the formation of expressions. The results were published in his 1862 work Mécanisme de la physionomie humaine, ou analyse électrophysiologique des passions which is one of the earliest medical works accompanied by photographic illustrations.

William de Wiveleslie Abney was in Egypt in 1874 to photograph the Transit of Venus and whilst awaiting that event he took photographs of the archaeological monuments of Thebes in Egypt. As he was on an official scientific expedition he was well equipped and accompanied by three members of the Royal Engineers of the British Army.[55] The quality of these tipped-in albumen plates is exceptional and reflects well on the training of the team.
 
In the preface to Captain W. de W. Abney'ss 1876 book Thebes and its five greater temples[56] he gives the context:
PREFACE.
 
Sent out by the English Government to observe the late transit of Venus, it was decided that the Author, with a party of three men of the Royal Engineers, should be detached from the head-quarters of the Egyptian Expedition located at Cairo, under Captain Orde Browne (late) R.A., and proceed to Thebes, to undertake the photographic work necessary for recording the different phases of the phenomenon. Accompanied by Colonel Campbell, of Blythswood, and party, whose mission was that of visually observing the transit from the same locality, the detachment arrived at their destination early in November, 1874. Their stay was necessarily one of comparatively long duration, and in the intervals of leisure, excursions were made to the different places of interest with which they were surrounded. The camera was a never-failing source of amusement to all, and the sun pictures obtained in a climate which at that time of year was very oppressive, whiled away many an hour which might have been less profitably spent.
 
The apology that the Author has to offer for publishing these sun pictures is that, perhaps, some who have visited Theban ground may like to recall the scenes which must have impressed them with wonderment, and that others to whom Egypt is a terra incognita may gain an idea, though of necessity imperfect, of the marvellous architectural creations of a race whose early history is as yet shrouded in obscurity.
 
The information comprised in the descriptive text has been largely taken from the works of Sir Gardner Wilkinson, Belzoni, Fergusson, and other authorities on Egyptology.
 
The best thanks of the Author are due to Corporals Laffeaty, Milne, and Farr, of the Royal Engineers, for the never-failing aid they rendered him whilst photographing the different scenes of interest in Egypt, without such co-operation the task now accomplished would have been doubly difficult.
 
Rochester,
15th May, 1876.[57]

Trade directories listing the principal manufacturers, suppliers, and shops of a city or region were an essential part of any expanding town. They were the "Yellow Pages" of their day and preserved as essential research tools by local studies libraries. Some trade directories had tipped-in photographs[58] that were commissioned to illustrate the premises or goods of a vendor. Isiah West Taber took photographs of businesses in San Francisco for his directory The Taber photographic album of principal business houses, residences & persons (1880).[59] William James Topley produced a similar volume The Ottawa album, containing photographs and advertisements of the principal business houses, hotels and steamboats and local views (1875)[60] Pages from an advertising album of Philadelphia taken by S[amuel] McMullin also survive.[61]

Henry Fox Talbot in his far-sighted book The Pencil of Nature (1844) illustrated with examples the diverse ways in which photography was applicable to a whole range of tasks. His futile attempts with the capturing of landscapes was precipitated by his own failure to use a camera lucida to his own satisfaction to capture the landscape during his travels to Lake Como. As he wrote:
One of the first days of the month of October 1833, I was amusing myself on the lovely shores of the Lake of Como, in Italy, taking sketches with Wollaston's Camera Lucida, or rather I should say, attempting to take them: but with the smallest possible amount of success. For when the eye was removed from the prism—in which all looked beautiful—I found that the faithless pencil had only left traces on the paper melancholy to behold.
 
After various fruitless attempts, I laid aside the instrument and came to the conclusion, that its use required a previous knowledge of drawing, which unfortunately I did not possess.[62]
His "fruitless attempts" at rendering Italian landscapes to his own satisfaction led him to experiments with chemistry and light to his discovery of one of the early processes of photography. Here we need to understand the reasons for the drawings in the first place - the primary motivation is to document a landscape as a visual aide-memoire for a later time when removed from the location. It is tangible visual evidence of a location seen on one's travels and one that can be shared and enjoyed with others. In The Pencil of Nature Talbot included calotypes of Oxford, Paris, Orleans, London as well as his own house at Laycock Abbey in Wiltshire. He appreciated that a primary function of photography was the documentation of places and this preceded the travel photobooks that would rapidly follow. With daguerreotypes magnificent views could be taken and cityscapes recorded but they were one-offs as there was no negative and there existence only on a metal substrate made the production of books including them impractical.[63]
 
From the 1850s onwards books of exploration and less arduous travel were produced including ones with stereoviews such as those of Roger Fenton on The Conway in the Stereoscope (1860)[64], William Despard Hemphill 's volume on The Abbeys, Castles, and Scenery of Clonmel and the Surrounding Countryside (1860)[65] and Edward Bierstadt's Gems of American Scenery, consisting of Stereocopic Views among the White Mountains.[66]

Illustrated publications were used to support commercial ventures for example with John Payne Jennings promoting railways and tourism in England or Edward Bierstadt who was hired by William West Durant to take photographs for an advertising brochure - The Adirondacks, Artotype Views Among the Mountains and Lakes of the North Woods in the USA.
 
As the nineteenth century progressed the number of books with tipped-in photographs increased and travel was an ideal subject as the middle class expanded and European powers expanded their colonial domains. For those lacking the time to travel books with photographs were an educational substitute for the armchair traveller.
 
The photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson illustrated large numbers of books on different parts of the world including India, China, Indonesia, Russia, America and Mexico.

    Artotype - Invented by J. B. Obernetter of Germany this process is a form of the collotype process, a photo-mechanical printing process and similar to that of the Albertype. It was patented in America in 1878 and in Canada in 1879. It looks like a full-toned albumen photograph, however it was printed on a lithographic press using ink. This process was the precursor to half-tone engraving using dots. Thousands of images could be printed economically and would be used in magazines and catalogues. Lindop and Cooper, from St. Thomas were the driving force in bringing this process over from Germany.
