Charles W. Hastings & Lyonel Clark, (eds.), The Photographic Societies Reporter:
 
"We have the pleasure to present to our readers a portrait of Capt. W. de W. Abney, C.B., R.E., F.R.S., etc., reproduced by the Woodbury process, from a negative taken by Mr. A. J. Melhuish, F.R.A.S., and printed by Messrs. Waterlow & Sons, Limited.
 
Captain Abney was born at Derby in 1843, he is well known in military and scientific circles, he is attached to the Science and Art Department, South Kensington, and a prominent figure in all matters treating on photography and its kindred sciences. This year he occupied the chair of the Physical Section of the British Association at the meetings at Newcastle. He is president of the Camera Club, a position which he has held since the formation of the club; he is also one of the Vice-Presidents of the Photographic Society of Great Britain."
