OUR readers are so familiar with this bulky but indispensable accessory to the photographic studio that the mere announcement of the new issue is enough to make them obtain their copy. With 1436 pages the book is a veritable mine of information, and not only is it now almost a standard book of reference, but it is instructive in a host of ways. This year the editor contributes a very valuable article on lantern-slide making, and as this subject is a very popular one to-day, it should find a great number of readers. No less instructive is the admirable way Mr. C. H. Hewitt tells us how both in- and out-door portraiture may be successfully accomplished without any special appliances, and with the ordinary camera and lens; the article is also well illustrated with eleven examples of specimen work.
