Book Condition: Very Good-
(no dust jacket) [gilt lettering on spine and front cover still bright; book has absorbed some moisture at some point, as there is dampstaining on the front cover and at the margins of both endpapers and pastedowns, and the book itself is a bit bowed; aside from that, however, this is a good solid copy, internally quite clean; there is a bit of damage (splitting) to part of the internal front hinge, but no separation, and the binding is completely intact]. (B&W photographs, diagrams) Very scarce early photography volume, printed in London (per a statement at the back of the book) despite the New York publisher's imprint, and bearing no date on the book itself (the Library of Congress's copy is catalogued as an 1895 publication). 54 illustrations, on 28 plates.
