Digital imaging information:
Original images captured at 400 dpi in color on a Phase I Scanning Back camera.

Images stored as TIFFs. High resolution web images reduced to 72 dpi and rescaled to 1000 pixels on the short side. Images are available in both color with edge-to-edge margins as well as cropped and converted to grayscale with significant sharpening. PDF versions of pages were also created.
