Hill & Adamson:

An Inventory of 100 Calotypes by D. O. Hill. R.S.A. and R. Adamson (Stanfield Album) in the Photography Collection at the Harry Ransom Center



Creator: Hill, David Octavius, 1802-1870 and Adamson, Robert, 1821-1848
Title: 100 Calotypes by D. O. Hill. R.S.A. and R. Adamson (Stanfield Album)
Dates: 1843-1845 (ca.).
Abstract: Album produced by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson and either given or sold to Clarkson Stanfield in 1845.
Call Number: Photography Collection PH-841
Extent: 109 items
Language: English
Repository: The University of Texas at Austin, Harry Ransom Center

Scope and Contents

Album produced by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson and either given or sold to Clarkson Stanfield in 1845. Book boards covered with maroon leather embossed with an identical pattern on both the front and back. Leather on spine embossed: "I00 / CALOTYPE / SKETCHES.", "D. O. HILL, RSA. / and / R.ADAMSON.", "EDINBURGH I845.". End sheets are marbleized paper. Most pages still have interleaving sheets. While the title of the album suggests there are 100 images contained, the album actually contains 109 salted paper prints most with inscriptions provided by either Hill or Adamson. The images are of prominent men and women of the day, friends and acquaintances of Hill and Adamson, and scenes of Edinburgh, Newhaven, and St. Andrews, and Scottish architecture and art. The nine additional images can explained in several ways. First, six images cover/originally covered other images. It appears that Hill and Adamson did not like their original choice of several images, and later mounted different images over the originals. In most cases, the covered image is very similar to another image in the album (compare 964:0048:0044, a covered image, with 964:0048:0045). Second, the first two images in the book appear on the half-title and title page, and therefore may not have been counted as part of the "100" referred to in the title page. And, a third explanation may be that the cover for the album was printed before Hill and Adamson's selection of images to be included.
