    Abstract

    BESIDES the usual epitome of progress, formulae, tables, and miscellaneous information, this volume includes concise essays on the makers of photography, modern enlarging, and colour photography, with a note on bromoil. The “Makers of Photography” is by the editor, and is a history of the development of photography from the earliest times up to approximately 1890, though, as might be expected, the last twenty or so years of the period is very sketchily done. The value of this article lies in the history of the earlier periods, practically the first half of last century, as certain items which have only recently come to light are duly incorporated for, we believe, the first time. The other articles also are excellent summaries of the subjects with which they deal.
