THE IOWA SET

The original images (buttons above, left) had to be made from colour photocopies, due to restrictions placed by the British library.

All involved in the publication of Addison's book have been dead for over 75 years, so the images are out of copyright and in the public domain.

The rare-books section of the Hardin library at the University of Iowa has created direct off-the-page JPEG images, compressed to about 300 kilobytes each.

Those pages have yellowed with age. Accordingly, the patients themselves will be expected to yellow with the passage of time. The images, after all, portray skin pigment.

To obviate such a situation, Charles Wehner took the Iowa set from:
http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/hardin/rbr/Imaging/albums/addison/index.html
and corrected ONLY the whites, from approximately 245 225 219 to the equivalent of 245 245 245 (red, green, blue).

The images were then compressed to JPEG at only 150 kilobytes per frame. Accordingly, the entire set (obtainable as a ZIP file from the bottom panel above) can be stored either as a ZIP or as separate images on a single floppy disk.

Extracting the ZIP file to floppy A: without redirection creates the directory
A:/WEHNER/ADDISON/IMAGES/IOWA/
filled with the pictures. Similarly, extraction to a mirror site automatically adds the filled directory
/IOWA/
to the /ADDISON/IMAGES/ section.

An updated /ADDISON/IMAGES/INDEX.HTM will also be fed into the /ADDISON/IMAGES/ directory, complete with thumbnail pictures 1a.jpg, 2a.jpg and so on to 11a.jpg. The original thumbnails will only appear, and their links will only be valid, when IOWA.ZIP is used as a patch on top of the original set (WEHNER.ZIP).

The Iowa set on this site and the retyped HTML book represent the nearest approximation to having the original 1855 publication without the yellowing.

Text on the images is slightly blurred, but can be copied from the original photocopy set.

Our thanks to the Univerity of Iowa for giving permission to make these images available.
