Product description


"An abbreviated catalogue raisonné of 220 of Sarah Angelina Acland's 1,000 images, this book increases one's knowledge of this important photographic era, especially of the active involvement of women and the upper class. . . . A significant addition to the field."-- (06/01/2013)

"This book establishes Sarah Angelina Acland as an important participant in the emerging colour processes at the turn of the twentieth century, and I am confident she would approve of the thoroughness of her dedicated biographer."
--Royal Photographic Society (04/10/2013)

"The beautiful plates and Giles Hudson's meticulously researched text make this a collector's item every library should own."--Woman's Art Journal (10/07/2013)

"Sarah Angelina Acland is one of the most important photographers of the late Victorian and early Edwardian periods. . . . This volume provides an introduction to [her] photography, with more than two-hundred examples of her work, from portraits to picturesque views of the gardens of Madeira. Some fifty unpublished specimens of the photographic art and science of her peers are also reproduced from the Bodleian collections. . . . The photographs not only shed important light on the history of photography in the period, but also offer a fascinating insight into the lives of a pre-eminent English family and their circle of friends."-- (02/23/2015)
