    I had a look at the PDFs on his website, and it is quite the show-stopping collection. Entire runs of the Daguerrian journals, old 19th century manuals about tri-color printing, and the list goes on.

    Hopefully, a centre like the GEH or the ICP will get a hold of him.

    Sean, you interested?

    It would be wonderful if the entire collection was digitized and made available to the public. Google are you listening?

    *Sigh* It's out of my price range, but what a collection to have fully text searchable.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
