Description

Woodburytype print, inscribed verso, 'Print from Woodbury's first woodburytype mould'. Walter Bentley Woodbury (1834-1885) invented the Woodburytype photographic process. Born in Manchester, Woodbury lived in Australia and Java, and set-up photographic studios there using the Collodion process. In 1864 Woodbury patented the Woodburytype process, a form of photomechanical gelatin reproduction that went on to become popular in book illustration in the latter part of the 19th century.
