"A general instructional work for the amateur photographer detailing aspects of photography other than picture making out-of-doors. Particular emphasis is given to lantern slide production, including the reduction and enlargement of negatives, chemical toning of slides, and the multiple printing of clouds and other effects. The organization of slide lectures or 'entertainments,' as they were called, is also included.... discussion of magnesium light photography indoors and under unusual lighting conditions, and a particularly early and comprehensive series of chapters on electric light photography and the making of inexpensive energy sources."
