“The Book of Photography – Practical, Theoretic and Applied” is a 1905 work by Australian writer Paul N. Hasluck. It deals with the science behind photography, exploring the different methods of photography used and describing the processes by which photographs are created and developed. This volume is not to be missed by those with an interest in the scientific aspects of photography, and it would make for a a worthy addition to related collections. Contents include: “Exposure of the Photographic Plate”, “Development Processes of Printing”, “Chemistry of Carbon Compounds Used in Photography”, “Natural History Photography”, “Portraiture”, “Treatment of Residues”, “Astronomical Photography”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
