Full Description


This study by the Henisch's is the first to examine Cuthbert Bede's Photographic Pleasures (1855) in detail, to decode its jokes and to show how they were shaped by the preoccupations and idiosyncratic charm of their inventor. It was the first humorous treatment of the new art and craft of photography to be published in England. To the readers of its day it offered an up-to-the-minute commentary on the fads and foibles, trials and tribulations of the photographic enthusiast.
