Early Photographs of Eadweard Muybridge

Early Photographs by Eadweard Muybridge

Over 1400 magnificent photographs
Almost all of them in a book for the first time ever

Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) is remembered today for his stop-motion photographs of people and animals in motion, produced in Philadelphia in the mid 1880s.  Before then, however, he was famous for his Western landscapes and scenes of San Francisco.  This volume reproduces images he created between 1867 and 1876.

Please note: due to the age and condition of the original photographs, quality may vary.  This book is meant to be a guide to Muybridge's early work — it's not what you might expect from a glossy "coffee table" book.  In order to provide a comprehensive guide, 2 or 2 photographs are printed on each page, so they're a little smaller than the original prints.  Please contact us if you might be interested in a higher quality glossy version of this book.

Shoreham House guarantees your satisfaction with Early Photographs and we will accept the book for a full refund if returned to us within 30 days of purchase.  Contact us for details.
