Abstract

In 1847 William Stirling Maxwell (1818–1878) published the three volumes of his Annals of the Artists of Spain in London. They were followed by a fourth – a limited edition of 50 presentation copies containing illustrations made with an absolutely new and experimental technique: Talbotypes. This publication is an “ideal” reconstruction of these reproductions in a facsimile edition of Stirling’s volume, as all the known copies are badly deteriorated due to exposure to air and light. It is also a work by the two leading specialists responsible for the project, who have written exhaustive studies on the technique and the art-historical context in which the Talbotypes were produced, along with a catalogue raisonné of each one.
