"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 Some fifty unpublished specimens of the photographic art and science of her peers are also reproduced from the Bodleian collections.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)

As with many photographers of her era she was in a wealthy well connected family which gave her the opportunity to indulge in such an expensive pastime. Thus the individuals she was able to photograph and the ability to travel abroad provided her with subjects not normally available.
This is an excellent book, not only to dip into occasionally but to read in depth as the author, Giles Hudson, gives much detail about her life and background as well as the photographs provided.
