Old Cameras, 1839-1939 by Robert White

Book Description

In 1839 the world heard that it was possible to capture the image by chemical means without the aid of the artist's hand. This book traces the development of the camera from its origins, through the wet colodion period and the boom years for amateur photography which followed the introduction of fast dry plates in the 1880s, and into the 1890s when roll films and commercial processing made snapshots possible. The twentieth century brought smaller, even pocketable cameras which led in the 1920s and 1930s to the miniature camera using 35mm film.

Author Biography - Robert White

Robert White has been fascinated by old cameras since about 1960, when he bought his first, a Sanderson, to improve the quality of the pictures he entered for local camera club competitions. Encouraged by the results he bought more and soon found he was collecting rather than using them. He joined and subsequently chaired the working part of the Royal Photographic Society's museum. He has lectured on old cameras to photographic societies around East Anglian, has staged local exhibitions of his collection and written a number of magazine articles.
