The earliest years contain an original photographic frontispiece and one or two other original photographs mounted to board with printed captions. In later years, the frontispiece and other "special" illustrations were made using a variety of photomechanical processes; other illustrations were in halftone. A compendium of the year's technical improvements and artistic achievements.

In 1903, this periodical absorbed "The International Annual of Anthony's Photographic Bulletin." Publication began in 1887 and ceased in 1953.

Duplicate volumes are available, please inquire.
