"More than 4000 high-speed shots of 34 different animals and birds, in 123 different types of action: horses, elephants, mastiffs, camels, guanacos, sloths, cats, raccoons, baboons, jaguars, kangaroos, asses, gnus, gazelles, pigs, elands, oxen, setters, mules, lions, deer, goats, whippets, elk, pigeons, adjutants, oryx, vultures, cockatoos, hawks, ostriches, tigers, capybaras, eagles. Animals are shown walking, running, leaping, flying--in typical actions.

[Many] photos taken against ruled backgrounds; most actions taken from 3 angles at once: 90°, 60°, rear. Foreshortened views are included."--Jacket
Gallop! by Rufus Butler Seder( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and English and held by 1,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's never before been a book like Gallop! Employing a patented new technology called Scanimation, each page is a marvel that brings animals, along with one shining star, to life with art that literally moves. It's impossible not to flip the page, and flip it again, and again, and again. A first book of motion for kids, it shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters. Created by Rufus Butler Seder, an inventor, artist, and filmmaker fascinated by antique optical toys, Scanimation is a state-of-the-art six-phase animation process that combines the "persistence of vision" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. It harkens back to the old magical days of the kinetoscope, and the effect is astonishing, like a Muybridge photo series springing into action--or, in terms kids can relate to, like a video without a screen. Complementing the art is a delightful rhyming text full of simple questions and fun, nonsense replies: Can you gallop like a horse? giddyup-a-loo! Can you strut like a rooster? cock-a-doodle-doo!

Helios : Eadweard Muybridge in a time of change by Philip Brookman( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Eadweard Muybridge was above all an innovator who played a groundbreaking role in the creative transformation of late nineteenth-century American and European culture. He pushed the limits of existing technology between 1850 and the dawn of the twentieth century, a time of rapid social and political change. Inspired by a complex set of goals that were artistic, scientific, commercial, and above all personal in nature, Muybridge reinterpreted the grand landscape traditions of photography, surveyed the construction of Western railroads, depicted the growth of the Pacific Coast of the United States, and documented the Modoc War and Central American agriculture. He then developed the ability to freeze photographic sequences describing human and animal locomotion, and reanimated these in some of the first projected motion pictures. Muybridge helped alter and expand our understanding of the world, yet the full complexity of his art is little known today

11 editions published between 1894 and 2002 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genesis of the motion picture medium is recreated in this collection of films from cinema's formative period. More than crucial historical artifacts, these films reveal the foundation from which the styles and stories of the contemporary cinema would later arise. An animated rendering of Eadweard Muybridge's primitive motion studies (1877-85) begins the program, immediately defining the compound appeal of cinema as both a scientific marvel and sensational popular entertainment. This is followed by the works of Louis and Auguste Lumière."--Publisher
