    Hi all--
    I just found a photography book from 1945 with some formulas for the following developers:

    Agfa 17
    Edwal 10
    DuPont ND2
    Kodak D76
    Kodak D23
    Champlin 16
    Edwal 20
    Focal Super Fine
    Kodak DK20
    MCM 100
    DR. Sease
    Seyewetz
    Fink-Roselieve X.33

    I'm attaching pdfs of the 4 pages of the book....hopefully this information will be useful to some here.

    Agfa 17 is misnamed it's Agfa Ansco 17 the same formula is actually Agfa (Orwo) 44.

    That's the one! It's been on the shelf for years. For some reason, it called out to me earlier this evening...

    Thanks for posting these. Could you put up the next page, where developing times are discussed?

    ID-68 is Microphen

    Original Promicrol has been published but can't be made, the dev agent went out of production, it was also used in Atomal

    All the published FX series inc FX18 are online on various sites. DK50 is/was Kodaks version of the Wellington & Ward Buffered Borax formula, D25 is D23 with 15gms of Sodium metabisulphite
