MOVEMENT
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1895. First American edition. 8vo., xv, 323 pp., 200 b&w illustrations, adverts. Publisher's red cloth, embossed with titling and design element on both boards in black ink, and on the spine in black and gold. There is very light fading, and one tiny spot of wear on the spine; else a fine, near new copy. Translated from the French by Eric Pritchard, this title is one of the most famous works of Marey, and the culmination of 30 years of research into the scientific applications of motion-analysis. He further developed animated photography into a separate field of chronophotography, with his revolutionary idea to record several phases of movement on one photographic surface. His research on how to capture and display moving images had a profound influence upon Thomas Edison and Luis Lumière in the emerging field of cinematography. It is not without merit that this work is often credited as the first book on cinematography. See: Mannoni, Laurent, WHO's WHO OF VICTORIAN CINEMA. Many of the illustrations in this work are from photographs. Garrison and Morton No. 643. Roosens and Salu No. 6833.
