This is a research database containing individual records for over 20 000 photographic exhibits drawn from forty exhibition catalogues published between 1839 - 1865.

It was created by Roger Taylor and originally published under the same title in book form by the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, 2002.

The ephemeral checklists and catalogues that form the basis of this publication are rare and of limited access in the United Kingdom itself, and all the more scarce outside that country. By providing a single source that records the work exhibited by British and foreign photographers during the formative years of the development of the medium, Mr. Taylor has made a unique contribution to the history of photography. The volume will be welcomed by historians, custodians of photograph collections, dealers, collectors, libraries, and auction houses.
