Wien und Leipzig: A. Hartleben's, 1910. Hardcover. Quarto size, 944 pp., text in German. Very Good. Item #13062501

A 100-year old technical book on photography, with 35 photographic and steel-engraved plates (Tefel), many of which fold out.

The author, Georg Heinrich Emmerich (1870-1923), was the founder of the first School of Photography and the first Professor of Photographic Society in Bavaria. Emmerich was an advocate of pictorialism , a style that endeavored to prove that photography was a full-fledged artistic expression and not purely a technique for photographing naked photos of objects. He went on to found the Training and Research Institute of Photography in Munich in 1900, and was director there until 1917.
