    This is a wealth of information and knowledge! Not only those three documents, but the entire categories of Photographic chemistry and Photography! Thank you very much for shearing it!

    These were still being published when I joined the company in 1965, and I think that they were up to about volume 7 or 10. I have one of them here somewhere.

    They also published several in-house textbooks. I have one called "Photographic Theory". There were also books on emulsion making and color product theory and design. The emulsion making book, as I remember it had over 50 pages alone on spectral sensitization and was written by Paul Gilman. He also taught that part of the course.

    Every Kodak engineer had to take a very lengthy course in photographic theory and design which also included a brushup in chemistry and math along with color theory. I have quite a collection of textbooks for the courses.

    I doubt if the in-house texts will ever be published.

    The internal Kodak publications that I have are very lengthy and also copyright and so I cannot duplicate them here.

    Other publications by Kodak

    This is the cover from a 200 page 8.5 x 11 inch textbook published internally. IDK what the distribution of these was nor how many different volumes like this were published.

    Other books published were as thick or thicker with much information packed into them. With regard to some of the work published internally in these books it was rather recursive to me as they referr me to my own work much of which was not published other than in these internal texts.

    Many publications from ICIS, SPSE and other photo organizations exist that were only distributed to members or registrants of meetings and some articles were never published outside of these booklets. I have several of those as well.

    I really don't know what to do with them except donate them to GEH at some point in time.

    Another text

    This is an SPSE publication of over 400 pages, standard textbook size. It contains 19 chapters written by the top experts in their fields from each company. So, this crosses company lines, but nevertheless it is a good tutorial for anyone that can get their hands on it. Of course it contains no confidential or proprietary information.

    That is one limit that will be of importance historically.

    Great find, all three. But the third book , 'The photographic negative' from 1888, is absolutely fantastic!

    Thanks for sharing these...
