66.1. Emerson, Peter Henry. Naturalistic Photography for Students of the Art (1889, 1890). Facsmile of the Second Edition with introduction by Peter Pollack. Amphoto, 1972. Hardcover, green cloth, with protected dust jacket. One of the classic texts in the history of photography, Emerson here argues for a modern style of photography in contrast to that of Henry Peach Robinson, who advocated constructing photos from many different negatives. Emerson's photographs were similar in technique and spirit to those of the younger Alfred Stieglitz in his formative period. Stieglitz was encouraged by Emerson through the award of a first prize in a competition. Stieglitz later was the founder of the Photo-Secession, a group of Pictorialist photographers that included Edward Steichen, Frederick Evans, Gertrude Kasebier, Eva Watson-Schutze, Clarence White, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Craig Annan, Baron de Meyer, Anne Brigman, and Alice Boughton, and edited the Secession's journal Camera Work magazine. To some degree, Stieglitz succeeded Emerson as the leading advocate for photography as an art form and carried forward Emerson's advocacy of straight photography. Consequently, photo historians such as Beaumont Newhall have emphasized Emerson's importance in the history of photography. This edition of Naturalistic Photography includes all the wonderful advertisements for cameras, lenses, photographic papers, and other photographic products that appeared in the front and back of the 1890 edition. Also lists of Emerson’s works, reviews, etc. More than 313 pages.Hardcover, fine, with near fine dust jacket that has one tiny chip and a very small closed tear.
