Photo-era; the American journal of photography; volume XXVIII nos. 1 - 6, XXIX nos. 1 - 6, and [bound out of order,] XXVI no. 3 [casebound in a single book]

Boston: the journal, 1911/12. 47, 276, 314p., [i.e., about 650 pages], with numerous b&w illustrations reproduced from photography interspersed amongst the texts. Unfortunately, original wrappers were discarded. Binder's cloth, perfunctory spine-title, 10 x 7.25 inch buckram boards. Quite edgeworn but otherwise sound and handleable.

No famous names: but how striking, the number of flatteries-by-imitation: I count at least two imitation Alvin Langdon Coburns --"Passaic, evening," and "City of my Dreams," respectively by Paul Anderson and E. L. Sleeth, and three or four of the entries in the [Photograph a] Rainy Day Scenes contest are passable A.L.Cs. Plus there are many that imitate painterly styles.
