H D Taylor 1862-1943

Harold Dennis Taylor usually known as H D Taylor was born in Huddersfield and went on to work with the optical manufacturers Cooke and Sons in York where he became manager of the optics workshop.



In 1891 he published The Adjustment and Testing of Telescope Objectives, but his most influential work was the design of the Cooke portrait Lens which virtually removed the problems of colour distortion or chromatic aberration around the edge of the lens.
