One of the few in-depth, authoritative studies on the interrelationships between art and photography from the earliest days, when artists either dismissed or felt threatened by the new invention, to the modern era, in which photographs exert a profound influence on society and take their place in the history of art. Illustrated with over two hundred and fifty photographs. A review copy, with the publisher's slip laid in.
A fine copy, with one surface indentation line in from cover; photo-illustrated dustjacket with only faint handsoiling. Clear glassine jacket protector.
