Keast Burke's article on B O Holtermann in the A.P.-R #5, 1953

This is the montage showing Holtermann and his specimen, which was probably made as a guide for the stained-glass artist-who, incidentally, did not make a very faithful copy of the photograph with which he was supplied (see reproduction, page 280). ' The "nugget" was copied from the Beavis Bros. photograph (see page 275), while Holtermann was specially posed with his arm on a head-rest at the requisite level. (Year, 1874; photographer, Bayliss; format, 10' x 12')
