About this Item

Early Cinematographic Manual with Developed Film Samples Pathé-Cinéma. Le film vièrge Pathé. Manuel de développement et de tirage. 8vo. xii, 155 pp. 6 leaves of plates containing 107 examples of film (some colored). Paris: Etablissements Pathé-Cinéma, 1926. 239 x 155 mm. Original publisher's quarter morocco, marbled boards, lower corners just a bit bumped, very slight edgewear. Fine copy. Former owner's signature on flyleaf. First Edition of this rare technical manual of motion picture film developing and printing, issued by the famous French firm founded by the Pathé brothers in the early days of cinematography. By the 1920s the Pathé firm was producing "the requisites for the entire motion picture process; i.e., raw stock, cameras, laboratory equipment, studio and projectors" (Jenkins, "History of the Motion Picture" [1920], reprinted in Fielding [ed.], Technological History of Motion Pictures and Television, pp. 1-6). The firm's manual contains detailed technical instructions on motion picture film development and printing, as well as information on several Pathé innovations such as the Pathé-Baby 9.5 mm. motion picture projectors and cameras for amateur use (introduced in 1922), Pathé's "film inversible" (reversal film), and the firm's techniques for tinting film stock and for producing full-color motion pictures. A stunning feature of the manual is its set of 107 actual frames of motion picture film, illustrating correct and incorrect development, the effect of temperature on film processing, and the various uses of the "teintures Pathés" with which the firm colored its film stock. The manual's introduction contains a brief (and adulatory) history of the Pathé firm, and the first chapter is devoted to a description of its factory in Vincennes. Bookseller Inventory # 43839
