    Very rare booklet on autochrome color photography. Spelled Autochrom, not Autochrome on the cover.

    Two pages are missing from this. WordPress routinely blocks uploading of a few files when I bulk upload. No rhyme or reason, they just do. When I keep trying to force upload the failed files WordPress takes my account down. Just something you have to put up with WordPress. Full copy of booklet is on the Internet Archive.

    No PDF. Some volunteer download jpegs from the Archive and make a PDF. Credit me for the scans and you for the PDF. I can't do it all.

    Note: if your PDF is low-res and looks like hell, leave my name off of it. Feel free to just credit yourself. I only sign my name to hi-level archival work.

    Interesting. I just wanted to hint you at that typing error...

    The "chrom" spelling was not uncommom in photography. It was the german spelling taken over even for german tradenames. And only in the 60s or so substituted for the english spelling.
    A british/american author writing on a french product using a german spelling is indeed weird. Maybe someone can make us wiser.
