Subject : Central nervous system — Histological preparations ; Photography.
Represented are nine histological preparations from the spines and lower brains of rabbit, ox, dog, and human. Trambusti adapted de Giaxi's method of photographing Koch cultures, dispensing with the negative by placing the glass culture plate directly on the positive. The method was no different than that employed by the first leaf printers who often chose fern fronds as negatives. Because of the translucency of Trambusti's tissue samples, he stained with carmine or hematoxylin before exposing.
