    Yes you're right Ole.

    However the contents of the GAF/Ansco formula book have been reproduced so widely over the last 70 or 80 years that any risk of running into copyright issues would be negligible.

    This book was published by a now defunct company, the contents were originally published by the German owned Agfa Ansco company, which was seized by the US Government during WWII and very conveniently never returned to the parent company after the war ended.

    There would be more of an issue if the material was being used for financial gain, instead of an academic resource for photographers.

    I have a decent collection of articles from the 1940's on emulsion making and chemistry, but they're all still in copyright. I'd transcribed a large part of one of the articles before I posted on APUG asking if it would be ok to share, under "fair use", and was suggested likely not. I'd love to share the information, personally, but that's how it goes I guess.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Book copyright is covered in outline here: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu...ks.html#whatpd - it seems to be reasonably up to date. These discussions occur so often, I bookmarked it.

    Cheers, Bob.

    I'd be content if you just put together a list of citations -- i.e., Author, title, publisher, etc.

It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    How about scanning and posting the notch codes?

    I did a search for this book and found that there is a guy with an Ebay store selling "reprints" (can we say photocopy) for $10. :rolleyes:

    Mine's an original publication, not a copy.

    And I had an old one online a long time ago:

    This thread should be under general B&W. It does not pertain to emulsion making, unless I missed something...

    Ole, can you move it to the proper place?

    Thanks - Kirk
