THIS little book contains a considerable amount of useful information on photographic apparatus and the use of it, and the photographic processes that amateurs are generally interested in. It wiE help the photographer to understand his work. We think it is a pity that the book has no index, and that the table of contents consists only of the short headings of the seven chapters of which it consists. Some of the lesser-used printing methods, such as carbon, bromoil, etc., are passed over with a mere mention, presumably so that the space available may be devoted to the more important subjects of lenses, cameras, and negative-making.
