Lovell Reeve & Co



Artist associated with 65 portraits
Lovell Reeve started his working life as a grocer's apprentice. However his passion was natural history and it was his knowledge in this area that led to a Fellowship in the Linnaean Society and the publication of first book Conchologia Systematica in 1841. He was a supporter of the educative and documentary value of photography, particularly stereo photography, and in 1858 he published the first book illustrated with stereo photographs, Tenneriffe: an Astronomers Experiment. In 1858 he started a new publication, The Stereoscopic Magazine, which contained images from British photographers including Roger Fenton, Ernest Edwards, Robert Howlett and H. Taylor.
