Details: "Sunlight and Shadow: A Book for Photographers Amateur and Professional" edited by W. I. Lincoln Adams is bound in gray cloth with black and gilt lettering and pictorial decoration, as well as full-edge gilt. "Illustrated by original photographs from nature", this title was published in 1897 by The Baker and Taylor Company, New York, NY.

From the Preface: "My little book entitles "Amateur Photography" was designed, as its sub-title suggested, to be a "practical guide for the beginner." The present volume seeks to aid the more advanced photographer. It is assumed that the reader has mastered the technicalities of photography, and now desires to make better pictures. I have therefore collected from "The Photographic Times," "The American Annual of Photography," and other sources, the following articles and illustrations by the best authorities on Photographic Landscape and Studio Art, including, also, some papers and illustrations of my own, in the hope that they may help, by precept and example, the photographer who desires to advance in pictorial photography."

This handsomely bound antique title displays some typical indications of age and wear including shelf wear and rubbing, with some soiling to the boards. The binding is partially cracked, however the text block is sound. Text and illustrations remain clear and crisp through mild age toning.

Condition / Notes: This handsomely bound antique title displays some typical indications of age and wear including shelfwear and rubbing, with some soiling to the boards.
