    Is that an electronic copy of the booK?

    I would be interested too.

    No, it was an original from 1948. I paid serious money for it, too. I was quoted USD$645.00 from one vendor, and aside from making my eyes water, I decided to keep looking for (and eventually found) a cheaper copy.

    Don't give up; they turn up from time to time. Just be ready when they do.

    Sheesh! I just picked my copy up out of the pile on the floor and put it on a shelf!

    I have a copy and read through this book but like any other old emulsion literature there are a lot of "tricks" that were later found untrue. Users of old books like this are strongly encouraged to consult at least double check with more updated sources before investing time or money.

    And I suppose that this statement is, of course, also backed up by first hand experience? Have you made the emulsions detailed in the book, OR more to the point, have you used the emulsion formulas in the book as a starting point with which you have made a corrected formula? Perhaps you would like to post some of your early tests with the various emulsions you have made for all of us to see? Perhaps you have better formulas that you yourself have designed and tested, and would like to share?

    Bob;

    I have made some of these emulsions and have 'corrected' the errors inherent in early publications. In addition, I have been able to understand some of the background information that is implied in the formulas in the book.

    In fact, I have discussed these formulas at length with Paul Gilman and have had the advantage of having his insight into some of them.

    I will probably be having lunch with a group or two of my 'cronies' over the next week and we will continue our discussions of these emulsions and how to update them for easy preparation in simple photo labs. I hope that Paul will be able to join us.

    PE,

    Thank you for passing that along. The fact that you and Paul Gilman reviewed these formulas in depth is encouraging. Perhaps one day you can share some of what you and your colleagues discuss regarding the formulas in the Baker book. It would be very interesting to learn what some of the best chemists at Kodak come up with, and maybe we can bring the formulas in that book up to date.

    Yes, of course.

    Many emulsion formulae in that book are taken from other sources and some are almost cut and paste. I have made many modernized versions and I have also handed out one simple formula which is a minimally modernized version of an old style bromide paper emulsion to several people who requested it.
