1. WHFT supplied original photoglyphic engravings of this image, ‘View in Java’, for inclusion in John Thomson, editor, A History and Handbook of Photography, Translated from the French of Gaston Tissandier, second and revised edition, with an Appendix by the Late Henry Fox Talbot (London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1878), p. 377. [See Doc. No: 06559]. The view, half of a stereo, was probably taken by Walter B. Woodbury or his partner James Page.
