° 11.2.1800; + 17.9.1877. Inventor of the negative-positive process on paper (his oldest negative on paper dates from 1835). In 1842 Talbot sent two consignments to the "Académie royale des sciences de Belgique": "Some specimens of drawings obtained by means of his calotype process and his other photogenic processes", and "portraits from nature and views of England". Talbot travelled through Belgium in October 1846. In Brussels and in Liège he did not manage to take photographs, but in Malines he took about ten, which thus constitute the oldest group of photographic images of a Belgian town to have survived to the present day. Import patent of 21.10.1858 for his photomechanical process of "photoglyphic engraving".
