Early Skiagraph Photographic Half tone Print X rays Roentgen Ray Images Hand Fish 1900.

A very good early Skiagraph print of a human hand and a fish produced using X rays or Roentgen rays (A Skiagraph is a permanent shadow picture produced by Roentgen rays passing through the object and falling upon photographic film). The key at the bottom of the sheet details various points on each picture as indicated. The black line visible between the first and second fingers of the hand is actually a piece of broken needle, the eye of which is clearly visible.

Published by Funk and Wagnall in their Standard Dictionary of the English Language in 1900. As Wilhelm Roentgen didn't make his discovery of X rays until November 1895 this can be classed as a very early published example and is a companion print to another I am listing. Of interest to collectors of medical science, photographic images or just the unusual.

Size: 12" x 8. 1/2". Printed on off white semi gloss paper with plain back.

Condition: Very Good - slight age toning and a 3/8" nick to the bottom edge reinforced to the back.

Will ship flat.
