    Ansel Adams Exposure Record - Binder and Many Blank Pages - Make an offer!

    Hi,

    This was something I was very pleasantly surprised to find at a local library sale. It's an official Ansel Adams exposure record log. It comes in a binder and has a short section covering the use of the log, the zone system and so forth, and has many pages for exposure records. The first two pages have a couple exposures recorded but the rest are totally blank. You can see in the last pic how many unused pages remain.

    I don't really know what this is worth, but not only is it a cool collectable but it's a completely usable tool for the distinguished photographer.

    Make me an offer, I don't really know what to ask for this.

    Thanks

    ..for the distinguished photographer.
    That lets me out.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    It's worth more as a slightly collectable item, but unfortunately it's not worth a lot, almost the same exposure record sheet is in "The Negative" (Ansel Adams) and can be copied for free.

    No doubt; and I'm not expecting to get rich off it. It's just neat; it's the real deal.

    And yeah, as if there was any doubt, I'm not claiming that this is Mr Adam's personal log.

    That is Virginia's writing on the title page!

    These were sold in bookstores, along with Adams books, in the 1970s. I had one and used it. I kept the filled out form in a folder with the negatives, and the information has actually been helpful in printing (or - gasp- scanning) the old negatives.
