Commercial production of collotypes in England began in 1869, introduced by the photographer, Ernest Edwards, who was also first to add alum to the top surface of the printing plate to increase hardness. The print illustrating this report may have been his first commission. He later patented a process for printing color collotypes, using multiple plates. Bowman is known as England's father of histological anatomy and ophthalmic surgery.
