Supreme instants : the photography of Edward Weston by Edward Weston( Book )

19 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of photographs commemorates the centennial of Weston's birth. It is notable because it contains seldom-seen early work as well as obscure color work done late in his career. The early work, mostly soft focus portraits, shares little with the clean, sharp style and carefully observed forms for which he is renowned. The essay by eminent photo historian Newhall is essentially a biographical sketch, particularly interesting for anecdotes of Newhall's experiences working with Weston. The authoritative work on Weston, however, continues to be Edward Weston: seventy photographs by Ben Maddow. For larger collections." Frank Schroth, Library Journal

The pencil of nature by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )

14 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published as a serial between 1844 and 1846, The Pencil of Nature was the first book to be illustrated entirely with photographs. Early enthusiast William Henry Fox Talbot hoped to spur public interest in photography but was forced to cease publication after just six installments. In its time, the serial was not a commercial success; however, more than 165 years later, it is recognized as a major contribution to the history of photography. Indeed, it has been said that the importance of this book is comparable to that of the Gutenberg Bible in the history of printing. In 1840 Fox Talbot invented the Calotype process—the precursor to film cameras—transforming everyday subjects into works of art. His twenty-four resulting prints, which include architectural studies, local landscapes, still lifes, close-ups, and even a carefully executed portrait, remain strikingly modern and quietly beautiful. The Pencil of Nature has been published in several different incarnations, yet this edition is the first to have been reproduced from the original plates held in England’s National Media Museum, each page of the original work published here as Fox Talbot had intended. A 44-page illustrated introduction by Colin Harding gives shape to Fox Talbot’s life and times, how he became interested in the notion of a “photogenic drawing” process, how he invented the Calotype, and how he conceived of The Pencil of Nature—the means by which he could show the art of photography to the world for the first time in a book. This is an essential volume for historians, photographers, and anyone interested in the development of photography

Edward Weston omnibus : a critical anthology by Edward Weston( Book )

10 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history and practice of the art of photography by Henry Hunt Snelling( Book )

7 editions published between 1849 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The object of this little work is to fill a void much complained of by Daguerreotypists--particularly young beginners. The author has waited a long time in hopes that some more able pen would be devoted to the subject, but the wants of the numerous, and constantly increasing, class, just mentioned, induces him to wait no longer. All the English works on the subject--particularly on the practical application, of Photogenic drawing--are deficient in many minute details, which are essential to a complete understanding of the art. Many of their methods of operating are entirely different from, and much inferior to, those practised in the United States: their apparatus, also, cannot compare with ours for completeness, utility or simplicity. I shall, therefore, confine myself principally--so far as Photogenic drawing upon metalic plates is concerned--to the methods practised by the most celebrated and experienced operators, drawing upon French and English authority only in cases where I find it essential to the purpose for which I design my work, namely: furnishing a complete system of Photography; such an one as will enable any gentleman, or lady, who may wish to practise the art, for profit or amusement, to do so without the trouble and expense of seeking instruction from professors, which in many cases within my own knowledge has prevented persons from embracing the profession
