1 Henry Taunt Collection Size: 14,000 images Coverage: oxford and Oxfordshire plus Thames-side counties from Source to Sea. Date range: Background: Henry Taunt (1842-1922) was a famous oxford photographer whose Collection of negatives, prints and other material was bought by oxford City Library in 1924/5. OPA retains Taunt 's original prints but his surviving glass plate negatives are now held in the National Monuments Record Centre in Swindon - the public archive of English Heritage. The two Collections have been virtually' re-united as a result of a joint digitization project funded by the New Opportunities Fund (NOF). Taunt Manuscript & Printed Works The Henry Taunt Collection at the Centre for Oxfordshire Studies, in addition to his photographic images, contains range of his printed (published) and manuscript works.
2 Taunt wrote for pleasure and also for profit, passing on his enthusiasm and widening the market for his photographs. He published over 50 titles, many of which ran to several editions, and he planned lots more which never got beyond typed or hand-written drafts. The river Thames, local history, architecture, customs, comets - all sorts of subjects interested him! Apart from those items with a blank, 'advertised' or 'Bodleian' COS Reference, all these works can be consulted at the Centre for Oxfordshire Studies.
