Notes for Captain Levett Landon Boscawen IBBETSON
From Wikipedia:

A notable 19th century geologist, inventor, organiser and soldier. He was particularly associated with early developments in photography, and was a Fellow of the Royal Society (elected 6 June 1850).

From his London home (46 Margaret Street, near Cavendish Square) , Ibbetson corresponded with William Henry Fox Talbot in 1842, having spent some years trying to produce a lithograph from an original daguerrotype, writing "I have been going on with experiments in the Callotype & have had some very good results as to depth of Colour." Ten years later, in 1852, Ibbetson exhibited work produced using the Talbot calotype process, called Le Premier Livre Imprimè par le Soleil, at a London Society of Arts exhibition. [This book, originally published in 1840, was an album of contact prints of ferns, grasses and flowers and used "the independently invented process of Friedrich Gerber of Berne, published in January 1839, when Ibbetson was residing in Berne."
