Nature volume 71, page 221 (05 January 1905) | Download Citation



THIS bulky volume, with its mine of miscellaneous photographic information, is compiled on the same lines as the earlier issues, and will be found to be a necessary adjunct to the studio and library. Among the host of articles in these pages may be mentioned a condensed summary of the story of the British Journal of Photography and the almanac which appeared in the jubilee number of the above mentioned journal, and also a selected number of the jubilee articles. Recent novelties in apparatus, &c, by the editor, forms also a conspicuous feature, and represents the progress in this branch of photography. No less important are the practical notes on numerous subjects, the formulae, tables, list of photographic societies of the United Kingdom, &c., all of which add to the utility of the volume. The full indices to advertisers and contents make a quick reference to any portion of the book quite an easy matter, an important consideration in a book containing 1612 pages. The processed illustrations and woodcuts are as numerous as ever.
