It's that time again... as those of you who are on my mailing list know, I have just issued another catalogue. This one is such a beast it had to be published in four parts. Four pdf files are available from the links below. The catalogue is titled "British Scouting Photos and Others" and it follows on from a very sucessful and now sold out catalogue earlier in the year of European Scouting Photos. The photos in this current catalogue are, for the most part by a UK photographer, based not far from here in Southampton, called Derek Blew.
The photographs all come from a single collection and are divided into four parts. Part I consists of photos of scouts and other similar activities and subjects all by Blew, some identified by ink stamps on the verso, others identified by his distinctive handwritten negative codes also on the verso or each. Part II is more of the same but these are printed in a smaller format. Part III may or may not be by Blew but they are all photographs of a couple of scouting events: a National Scoutcar Competition and an athletics meeting. Part IV is photographs from the same collection with similar themes but from other photographers, including press photos and some vintage photos.
