Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Howard Bond Negatives consists of negatives for 17 of Bond's 23 limited edition portfolios. Many are accompanied by Bond's extensive notes and annotations on subject, technique, etc. The negatives have been removed from their glassine envelopes for preservation, but the envelopes have been preserved. Each envelope precedes all the negatives originally contained within it.

Note: In some cases a pair of negatives will be found taped together; this appears to have been deliberate on the part of the photographer, and they should not be separated.
