The photographers whose work is discussed include David Octavius Hill, Robert Adamson, James Valentine, Thomas Annan and George Washington Wilson plus practitioners not previously mentioned in any publication.

Review:

'... There is an ease with which information is offered up in the text that belies the amount of effort and sheer graft that must have gone into researching this book before even a single word was written. ... I'm constantly amazed at the names casually mentioned throughout the text that I have never heard of before. ... I suggest you invest in a copy today. No bookshelf dedicated to the history and development of photography, never mind Scottish photography, should be without one.' (Scottish Society for the History of Photography, Studies in Photography 2016); ' ... Sara Stevenson and A. D. Morrison Low convincingly argue that the early success of a process that combined the sciences of optics and chemistry with artistic insight was the legacy of the Scottish Enlightenment.' (Gavin Stamp in Apollo)
