Synopsis :

FIRST EDITION VERY GOOD dust jacket hardcover, free tracking number, clean NEW text, solid binding, NO remainders NOT ex-library, smoke free; slight gentle shelfwear / storage-wear; foxing on top text edge WE SHIP FAST. 201606972 This is much more than just a picture book of Ireland. It is a fine review of the development of photography from its inception in the late 1830's with daguerrtotypes, then the wet collodions in 1851. The desire for photographs exploded and people wanted photographs of everything;particularly portraits,landscapes,buildings,work,statues,trains,ships,and so forth. It seems there was an attempt to photograph everything; from the simple ways of life, to the high and mighty. Lawrence and French were two of the most prominent in this field at the time.Fortunately, The National Library obtained 40,000 glass negatives of their work. These photographs were taken by French between the 1860,s and 1915. This book gives a wonderful example of his work as well as a great look of all aspects of life at the turn of the century.Carefully packed and quickly sent.
