(no dj, as issued) [faint external handling wear only]. (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the ffep: "For ____ ____ - / Preserve these films! - / Very best wishes, / Anthony Slide / 10/7/04." "This is a factual account of the history of film preservation in the United States," states the author, "but it is also a highly opinionated volume." At a time when terms like "preservation" and "restoration" have come into common usage, yet are often mis-used or misunderstood, this volume provides valuable insight into the technical, legal, aesthetic, financial and political complexities of moving image preservation.
