"Presents a magnificent display of historic photographs from the Royal Archives from 1842, when the first known photograph of a member of the Royal Family was taken, to 1910 and the end of Edward VII's reign... Based on the exhibition of the same title in the Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace. Through the work of nearly 100 photographers, it presents an invaluable record of the development of photography in the nineteenth century, both in terms of technical processes and as a form of art. As a detailed and continuous portrait gallery of the nineteenth-century Royal Family, it is full and authoritative. But is is also a record of the Victorian and Edwardian periods - informative in its wide-ranging perspective and delightful in its idiosyncrasies." - from dust jacket.
