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

13 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 588 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

Perspectives on photography : essays in honor of Beaumont Newhall( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seven essays by eminent photo-historians and curators are here collected to acknowledge and honor the contribution one man has made to the study of photography. The topics range from the early decades of photography in England and France, to a reassessment of the relationship between photography and Impressionism, to examinations of three major American photographers, Timothy O'Sullivan, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston. These essays exemplify the broadening and enrichment of the field that Newhall remarks upon in his introduction. He also recounts his early interest and education in photography and the events that led to his first scholarly endeavors in its history."--Page 4 de la couverture
