Henry Taunt Manuscript and Printed Works

Taunt’s Written Works

The Henry Taunt Collection at Oxfordshire History Centre, in addition to his photographic images, contains a range of his printed (published) and manuscript works.

Taunt wrote for pleasure and also for profit, passing on his enthusiasm and widening the market for his photographs.

He published over 50 titles, many of which ran to several editions, and he planned lots more which never got beyond typed or hand-written drafts. The river Thames, local history, architecture, customs, comets - all sorts of subjects interested him!


Most of these works can be consulted at Oxfordshire History Centre, although some are only available at the Department of Special and Western Manuscripts at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University.
