"The Pencil of Nature is a classic. It is a collection of paper photographs made by the inventor of the process, William Henry Fox Talbot, with his account of the discovery and prediction of uses to which it might be put. It is the first book illustrated with photographs and the first mass production of photographs. It stands in relation to photography as does the Guttenberg Bible to printing."--from Beaumont Newhall's introduction
