Joseph Cundall (British, 1818 - 1875)
Joseph Cundall was a printer-turned-publisher who produced some of the most handsome illustrated books of the 1850s and 1860s, including the Home Treasury series of children's books. After his own business went bankrupt around 1849, Cundall worked for other publishers as a freelancer. His photographic career had two high points: first, when Queen Victoria commissioned him and Robert Howlett to photograph the British heroes of the Crimean War in 1856; and again in 1871 when the British Government sent him to France to organise the first photographic record of the Bayeux Tapestry.
