"Monthly art periodical covering issues of the day. Photographic related articles were Autotype article and 'Some New Methods of Printing' by G. Warton Simpson which details the Autotype Co. purchasing the rights to the Gemosser (Rye) patent. The exquisite example of the Gemosser patent in this volume shows how each of the primary German inventors worked out very viable approaches. The other prints by the Woodbury method and by carbon printing are stunning examples also. Most of the images are from art andhave been carefully toned to math the look of the originals, the Blake and Michaelangelo being fine examples." -- Hanson collection catalog, p. 39-40.
