ILES, GEORGE. Flame, Electricity and the Camera, Man's Progress From the First Kindling of Fire to the Wireless Telegraph and the Photography of Color, New York: J.A. Hill, 1904. Octavo, edition de luxe of a 1900 release, pp. xv, 398, red cloth boards with gilt lettering a decoration on spine, gravure frontis of the author, top edge gilt, some leaves unopened, halftones and line drawings. An unusual approach to the history of photography, beginning with the discovery of fire and working in seemingly tangential inventions like the telegraph.
