‘PARTING THE VEIL OF FAERY’, 1890S:
‘A Scottish adventurer, inventor, and photographer named Neville Colmore claimed to have constructed a device capable of “…parting the veil of Faery…”. The device, which he called the “Spectobarathrum”, produced beautiful photo graphic plates he called “fatagravures”, through a now lost process. The original “Spectobarathrum” along with all of the images he claimed to have made were believed destroyed in a fire.
‘The images were first made public in the 1890′s. They were presented in scientific lectures and were by and large ignored’ MORE.
