LANDMARKS OF EARLY FILM To study where we've been is to better understand where we are, but early film is not of interest only because it illuminates present practices. Beyond considerable historical interest, the material collected here provides immense pleasure on its own terms. These are old films, and they are influential films. But beyond that, the bottom line is that they are wonderful films, rewarding our close attention with great enjoyments. - Excerpts from an essay by Dean W. Duncan Series Photography 1877-1885 1.
