  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to information originally supplied in Nov 1985 by Pamela Haas, author of an unpublished book on Dossetter, biographical information on Dossetter is virtually non-existent. He is not even mentioned by name in the American Museum of Natural History's archival records pertaining to his 1881 trip aboard HMS Rocket along the Northwest coast of BC.

      With the assistance of a 2020 email correspondent, along with email correspondence from 2010, some additional basic biographical information has been gathered through a more complete picture of his life emerged. In the 1851 England and Wales census, as well as in some other records, he is listed by his full name, Edward William Dossetter. In the 1861 England and Wales census he appears under the name William E. Dossetter, living with his widowed mother, two older brothers, their sister Sarah Ann Dossetter, and working as a "cutlers shopman".

      He was photographing in England in 1871-1872 and was hired by the photographer Joseph Cundall to photograph the entire Bayeux Tapestry in situ for the South Kensington Museum (today's Victoria and Albert Museum). Dossetter produced over 180 glass negatives between Sep and Dec 1872 while in France. According to the 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica (1910-1911), "The best coloured reproduction is that by C.A. Stothard in 1818, published in the sixth volume of Vetusta Monumenta; but in 1871-1872 the 'tapestry' was photographed for the English education authorities by E. Dossetter." A brief description of some of the technical challenges he had to overcome are found in Frank Rede Fowke's book The Bayeux Tapestry (1875; URL [accessed 17 Aug 2020]: https://archive.org/details/bayeuxtapestry00fowk/page/10/mode/2up). Because of the typesetting conventions for the book his name appears as though spelled Doffetter. A V&A Blog entry, "Photographing Bayeux" by Ella Ravilious, contains some additional information about Dossetter's work photographing the Bayeux Tapestry (URL [accessed 17 Aug 2020]: https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/caring-for-our-collections/photographing-bayeux).

      For reasons unknown but likely economic ones, Dossetter departed London for New Zealand on 25 Aug 1876 (Wellington Evening Post, 21 Oct 1876, p. 2: "English Shipping"). He arrived in Wellington on the Ocean Mail as a second-class passenger on 12 Dec 1876 (Wellington Evening Post, 13 Dec 1876, p. 2: "Arrival of the Ship Ocean Mail, from London"). He departed on the Taiaroa on 7 Feb 1877 for the port of Lyttelton near Christchurch on the South Island (Wellington Evening Post, 7 Feb 1877, p. 2: "Shipping, Port of Wellington...Departures"). Following a delay by a storm, the Taiaroa arrived at Lyttelton on 9 Feb 1877 (Christchurch The Globe, 9 Feb 1877, p. 2: "Shipping"); his name was spelled Dossiter.

      Dossetter's photographic work appears to have first been noticed in a newspaper article in Sep 1878. He was first listed as a Christchurch photographer in 1879. The Lyttelton Times reported that in a property assessment court session the value of his studio was reduced from 120 to 68 pounds (3 Mar 1879, p. 3: "Assessment Court"). His most important photograph from New Zealand was of a Moriori man from the Chatham Islands named Timoti
      Tara (he also went by Karaka or Pawa Ngamunga Kahuki). Most of the Moriori had been enslaved or killed by Maori raiding parties. Beginning in 1880 and until the 1883-1884 Christchurch directory, Dossetter operated under his own name and that of Edward Dossetter and Company. The backs of his cartes-de-visite indicate he had won prize medals. He likely sold his share or left the company to be managed by an employee or partner before moving to Victoria, BC, possibly over the winter of 1880-1881.

      Between 15 Jun and 10 Aug 1881 he accompanied Dr. I.W. Powell on an inspection tour through Indigenous territories along the Northwest coast as far as Wrangell, Alaska. From Wrangell he travelled up the Stikine River to Telegraph Creek via the Gertrude sternwheeler. Dossetter took many outstanding and invaluable landscape views and portraits, most of which were groups gathered for Dr. Powell's visit. Dossetter's name is recorded in the England census as a passenger aboard HMS Rocket on 3 Aug 1881 while the vessel was anchored at Skidegate, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands). Other than the census record, Dossetter is not mentioned by name or occupation in newspaper accounts of the trip or in the Rocket's logbook. Dosetter transferred 64 of his wet-plate glass negatives to Powell who then sent them to the American Museum Natural History; Dossetter charged Powell $270.00 for the negatives.

      The Victoria City Archives has an 1882 photo of Granville (Vancouver) credited to Dossetter. Though this may have been a different person, the BC Public Accounts for 1882-1883 note that he was paid for three days service as either a juror or a witness in the criminal case Regina vs T. Eaton (available through UBC Library's Open Collections, BC Sessional Papers; URL [accessed 18 Aug 2020]: https://open.library.ubc.ca/collections/bcsessional/). Curiously, a federal Department of Indian Affairs annual report notes the presence of an E. Dossetter (also spelled Dosetter) on a survey party in 1884-1885 as head chainman and payment of his transport from Victoria to New Westminster (Canada, Annual Report of the Department of Indian Affairs for the Year Ended 31st December, 1885, p. 131-132).

      Dossetter returned to England before May 1885 where he married in 1889 and continued to practice photography as late as 1899. Between May 1885 and May 1890 he appears to have worked for the Woodbury Permanent Photographic Printing Company as an employee and possibly under contract to the renowned English taxidermy firm Rowland Ward and Company, as three sets of several photographs were registered for copyright by the taxidermy firm listing Edward Dossetter as the photographer. He is not listed as a photographer in The Post Office London Directory for 1895 (Part 4: Trades and Professional Directory; digital facsimile available through the University of Leicester Special Collections Online). One of his most important private commissions was photographing the home of Lord Ronald Gower in the summer of 1886, the results of which were reproduced as Woodburytypes in Gower's book "Bric À Brac" (1888).

      A British Museum online catalogue description about him states "A Mr E Dossetter of 66 Mill Hill Road, Acton, was employed to make photographs of early prints in the BM in 1894-9, which were exchanged with German scholars." That Dossetter had an on-going relationship with the British Museum is evidenced by J. Horton Ryley, author of Ralph Fitch, England's Pioneer to India and Burma... (1899), who thanks Dossetter for his photographs of engravings in the British Museum (URL [accessed 19 Aug 2020]: https://books.google.ca/books?id=1RkoAAAAYAAJ). The British Museum also purchased from him in 1894 a photograph of an etching titled "Descriptive sketch of the three prints of the storming of Seringapatam" (British Museum, "Edward Dossetter", URL [accessed 18 Aug 2020]: https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/term/BIOG191235). The British Museum also owns at least one of the 1881 Northwest Coast voyage photographs.

      By 1911 he and his wife (they never had children) were living in Melcombe Regis, part of Weymouth, in Dorset county. The 1911 England census gives his "personal occupation" as "private means". His wife predeceased him on 22 Feb 1916 while they were living at "The Tryst" on Edge End Road, Broadstairs, Kent. After Dossetter's death, his estate was auctioned off on 3 May 1922 in Broadstairs.
    • IDENTIFYING MARKS: Print surface of 1881 photos usually signed "E. Dossetter, Photo." in lower right front corner. Most views from his 1881 trip with Dr. I.W. Powell are captioned in lower left front corner. Carte-de-visite backs are illustrated on the Early New Zealand Photographers and Their Successors Web site.
