One of my particular (and, some would say, pre-peculiar) pleasures is to read 19th century photographic periodicals, page by page, volume by volume. Copying with gay abandon, I feed my files with hundreds of items on personalities, processes and photographic topics. I gain a sense of the issues which actually engage the minds of the Victorian cameramen - which were very different from the issues with which historians have told us they concerned themselves. A most striking difference between good actuality and present perception, to take only one example, is the wonder and wacky sense of humor which fills the pages of the early photographic periodicals. ---excerpt from book's Introduction
