Photographic Invention, Mr. Niepce de Saint Victor

Mr. Niepce St. Victor has laid before the Academy of Sciences of Paris, photographic designs on paper, which are in every respect superior to anything of the kind ever attempted hitherto. He has employed a process of his own invention, which consists in placing upon the plate of glass to which the chloride of silver is applied, a delicate and perfectly smooth layer of starch or albumen, by means of which, the chloride regains its susceptibility to the influence of light.
