Hi Dan,
This is known as "combination printing" and was used to great effect by,
for example, Gustav le Gray in the mid-19th century. According to
Beaumont Newhall's classic history of photography, rather than the two
plates being "melded" as you suggest, "The two negatives were masked;
part of the print was made from one, and part from the other." Hope
that's helpful, Katharine
