Letter, June 1861,  form Sir David Brewster to Secretary of PSS International Exhibition - 1862

I trust you will excuse the liberty I take as President of the Photographic Society of Scotland, and at the request of the Council in calling your attention to the position assigned to photography in the classification adopted for the International Exhibition of 1862.

That photography is one of the Fine Arts, and more entitled to that place than engraving, can hardly admit of a doubt; and if such a doubt could exist in the mind of any person familiar with its processes or their results, the able argument addressed to Her Majesty’s Commissioners by Sir Frederick Pollock ought to have removed it.

In expressing the concurrence of the Photographic Society of Scotland in the views of  the Photographic Society of London, I venture to add that photography is yet in its infancy, requiring all the aid which optical and chemical science can afford it, and that any influential refusal to give it its due place among the Fine Arts must have an unfavorable influence upon its future progress"

PSS Exhibition correspondence  - Letter, 2/2/1862, from Vernon Heath, in which he claims:

“……..  The writer of the article in the last journal upon the Exhibition of the Photographic Society of Scotland, has in his hasty notes the result of a partially made inspection not treated me with justice.  I do not ask him for praise, but simply for a certain measure of accuracy in his report."
