Aims and Scope
William Henry Fox Talbot (1800–1877) is best known as an early inventor of photographic processes. For the first time, based on extensive new sources, this study examines Talbot's inventions in the context of his entire oeuvre. This makes possible new interpretations of his photographs, which the author views primarily as an instrument for his diverse scientific interests, and thus as part of a broader epistemic conception.
