(MAREY, ETIENNE-JULES). Marey, Etienne-Jules. PHYSIOLOGIE DU MOUVEMENT: LE VOL DES OISEAUX. Paris: G. Masson, Editeur, 1890. First Edition. 8vo. Wrappers Bound in 1/2 Leather. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. xvi + 384pp, 1 b&w plate + 164 b&w text illustrations. Text in French. Published in 1890 in Paris, "Physiologie du Mouvement: Le Vol Des Oiseaux" is pioneering chrono-photographer and filmmaker Etienne-Jules Marey's important illustrated text on the mechanics of avian flight as observed with the use of his revolutionary "photo-gun" - a precursor to the modern film camera. A spectacularly bright and fresh example of the original edition bound with its wrappers into a beautiful half red pebble-grained leather over hand-marbled boards binding with marbled endpapers, gilt titles, and five raised bands to the spine. The still supple leather shows a bit of sunning along the spine.
