Naturevolume 81page67 (1909) | Download Citation



SINCE the Keartons, some years ago, showed what splendid results could be achieved by an intelligent use of the camera as an aid to the study of natural history, a host of nature-photographers has arisen, but only a very few have attained the high standard of merit set by the founders of this branch of photography. Mr. R. B. Lodge and Miss E. L. Turner in this country, Schillings in Germany, and H. K. Job in America have in some respects even surpassed the Keartons; while in this display of resource and dogged persistence in the most trying circumstances they stand unrivalled.

By Oliver G. Pike, with a number of pen sketches by E. R. Paton. Pp. 106. (London: The Religious Tract Society, 1908.) Price 10s. 6d. net.
