James F Ryder was one of the fathers of American professional photography, beginning as a travelling daguerreotypist in 1847, introducing photo retouching to the United States, and serving twice as President of the National Photographers Association. These memoirs, published when he was 76, contain stories and anecdotes from his long career, which parallels the development of photography in nineteenth-century United States, well-illustrated by half-tone photographs from a number of photographers. The quality of the Arno reprint edition offers crisp reproduction of both the text and the photographs. ; The Literature Of Photography; Ex-Library; 251, 11 ad, 4ad pages.
