Series III: Glass Plate Negatives

Scope and Contents note

Series III contains 770 glass plate negatives made sometime after 1911 and before 1913, by which time Jackson had already sold the édouart silhouettes to Arthur Vernay. The negatives are numbered and arranged in the inventory sequence described in Series I above. There are several random negatives absent from the collection, as well as many groups: numbers 1 through 41, 330 through 382, 725 through 745, 821 through 892, 972 through 990, and 1020 through 1052 are missing. These blocks of numbers may indicate that full boxes of negatives had been broken or lost during Jackson's lifetime, or possibly when the collection made its transfer from England to America.
