From the back cover: "The History of Photography has long been recognized as a classic contribution to the study of the art of photography. Beaumont Newhall has achieved the most sensitive and thorough history of the medium, revealed through the eyes of those photographers who have shaped our vision and the understanding of our society through photography. Using more than two hundred illustrations of works by major photographers such as Hill and Adamson, O'Sullivan, Cameron, Atget, Emerson, Stieglitz, Weston, Adams, Lange, and Evans, the author presents a fascinating, comprehensive study of the significant trends and developments in the medium since the first photographs in 1939."
