In the Univ. of Texas collection are a number of views which were attributed by Gernsheim to William Crooks & John Speller, on oversized RMs. A few are numbered to #77, with notes about tech. details, many taken with single-lens camera; crystals, copy of a dag., still-life, chess game, street scenes, residence, rope walk. A few views are also in the group with the blind-stamp of Crooks, marine scenes, #s to 57. No further info. found on Speller. This William Crooks may poss. be same as Wm. Crookes who worked in Liverpool at the same period.
