The Mighty Corliss

On June 1 we opened a small exhibition of photographs which were printed from a selection (3 dozen or so) of ca. 1900-era glass negatives in our collection. It was written up in several places, including here:

The centerpiece is really the Corliss engine, and we have two (2) 1876 negatives which measure 20×24 inches. Here is a scan of one of the prints (all of them were developed by the AS220 Community Darkroom):

We hope at some point soon to create a joint catalog through which we will sell a limited number of prints of these negatives. The two Corliss prints will be issued in a limited run (no more than 20 sets) in an appropriate portfolio box, accompanied by a history of the Corliss engine, which became the signature display in the Centennial Exhibition:
