Author: WRESZINSKI, WALTER. Title: Bericht über die photographische Expedition von Kairo bis Wadi Halfa zwecks Abschluss der Materialsammlung für meinen Atlas zur altägyptischen Kulturgeschichte.
Description: Halle a. S., Max Niemeyer, 1927. Crown quarto. Pp. viii (foreword), 86 (also numbered 20-104). Figures to text. Plus 118 fine photographic reproductions, all printed in collotype on 77 leaves of plates, some full- or double-page, including 2 fold-out panoramas and a double-page map. Many of the photographs are accompanied by explanatory hand-drawn illustrations, printed on the plates. Original uncut, loose gatherings, unbound as issued. Fine, never-used copy, in the original state. ¶ ~ 1. Auflage. Schriften der Königsberger Gelehrten Gesellschaft, Geisteswissenschaftliche Klasse, 4. Jahr, Heft 2. Beautifully illustrated. Wreszinski's written report accompanies a superbly produced photographic document, taken entirely on location and published here for the first time. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms.
