    Ansco Formulas/PDFs

    Hi all--
    I picked up a cool little booklet today called "Ansco Formulas for B&W photography." I've started scanning them and made them into pdfs. If you have any interest in these, feel free to download them from this link:

    http://www.mattosbornephotography.com/Ansco/

    If anyone finds this stuff interesting I can scan/post the rest of them. Actually, I've always thought APUG should have a library of all kinds of this stuff/manuals/etc. for everyone to reference. Anyway, hope you like them...I found it interesting.

    Adios,
    Matt

    I like the idea and would love the pdf's but they are huge! 4 megs for 1 page is a bit excessive. Maybe you could scan them as B&W line art. This would reduce the file size significantly.

    Thanks for the efforts!

    There is an APUG Library:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/articles.php

    I posted many of these Ansco/GAF/American Agfa Recipes as text in the APUG Chemical Recipes (see above URL).

    Sean is in the process of restoring additional recipes from the APUG archives.

    I like the idea, and prefer the pdf's. It only takes aboout 4-5 seconds to download each one. Keep up the good work.
    Thanks

    Matt, it would be useful to scan the cover, and also give the date of publication. The book is almost certainly out of Copyright now.

    There are naming issues with Agfa Ansco, Ansco, and GAF, formulae because many of them are different to the German Agfa, and also Orwo, formulae of the same number, so when listed clarity is needed.

    It isn't. Copyright in most countries runs for life of author + 70 years, so a book published in 1950 will always still be in copyright.
