Printing Details

Undated, c1922. Sixth edition, hardback bound in the original red cloth with gilt titling to spine and blindstamped titling to upper board, 24.4 × 30cm, 277pp.

Muybridge's amazing motion photographs were taken between 1872 and 1885, and shows men, women and children engaged in various activities (usually undressed) including baseball, stone throwing, boxing, woman walking and flirting a fan, dancing a pirouette, as well as everyday movements. When presented in this time-lapse form (usually between 01 and 03 of a second) create a fascinating view of the human body.


Good condition, but with some wear. The red cloth binding is a little dulled, with finger marks to the edges and a little rippling to the cloth at the top edge. Slight rubbing and bumping to boards. The pages, whilst intact, also have some finger marking to the fore-edge and are lightly foxed to the prelims and page edges. The inner binding is secure but sags a little as is common with books of this size and weight.
