About This Item

New York: Dover 72 pp text & b&w illustrations, followed by 182 double-page b&w plates, each with multiple images. "Here is the largest, most comprehensive selection of Muybridge's famous animals photos - more than 4000 high-speed shots of 34 different animals and birds, in 123 different types of action. Animals are shown walking, running, leaping, flying - in typical action. The horse alone is shown in more than 40 different ways: galloping with nude rider, trotting, pacing with sulky, cantering, jumping hurdles, carrying, rolling on barrels, and 36 other actions. All photos (are) taken against ruled backgrounds; most actions (are) taken from 3 angles at once: 90 degrees, 60 degrees, rear. Foreshortened views are included. These are true action photos, stopped in series, taken at speeds up to 1/2000th of a second. Actions are illustrated in series, with as many as 50 shots per action. Muybridge worked with the U. of Pa. for 3 years, made more than 100,000 exposures, and spent more than $50,000. His work has never been superseded as a lifetime reference for animators, illustrators, artists, art directors." Minor wrinkle at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkle at bottom of spine, one tiny tear at top of front flap-fold.. Reprint.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good+. Illus. by Eadweard Muybridge, photographs..
