A Brief History of Photography is just what it says it is. Fast paced and easy to read, yet it covers the complete history from 1614 right through 2020. It not only includes the chemistry, but also the seminal cameras, films, sensors, lenses and accessories of their day; along with hundreds of "trivia" & "oddities" entries - which offer little-known, yet fascinating background details on both the inventors & their inventions. Profusely illustrated.
Essential reading for every photographer.
“Wow! [I'd like to say] how enormously impressed I am with your history of photography. To compile that much information, covering so many different aspects of such a very wide subject matter, is an amazing feat. It's just before midnight now ... and I've been reading non-stop for about four hours.. Once again: WOW!"

“...if you haven't gotten a chance to read [A Brief History] I urge you to do so. [David] has updated the "History..." with images and additional text that just put a high gloss on an already sterling presentation.”
