Gernsheim INCUNABULA #652 states, "Contains 'Sketch of the different methods of photogenic drawing', pp. 101-9." This section on photography describes three methods, ostensibly Talbot's, where an image is obtained on paper treated with nitrate or chloride of silver, Niepce's plate preparation with resins, bitumens or essential oils, and Daguerre's. This second edition appears to be from the sheets of the first edition (1841) with a reset publisher's imprint. The cloth binding is also a variant of 1841.
