Light Verse, and Worse, on Victorian Photography.

Edited by Bill Jay.
Nazraeli Press, Tucson, 1994. 64 pp., 6X8¼".

Some Rollicking Bull, a collection of verse, anecdotes, and cartoons from nineteenth-century photographic periodicals, is a hilarious view into the early days of photography. Because of its newness, photography was replete with numerous difficulties--from prints fading to having to sit with one's head in a clamp for half an hour--and this, coupled with the nineteenth-century spirit, gave rise to many witty observations. Some of the verses are in earnest, which adds even more to their laughability. Bill Jay supplies informative text on each of the authors, and his introduction provides some intriguing background on the milieu.
