PHOTOGRAPHS OF THIS BOOK CAN BE SENT ON REQUEST * Rev. Edward Bradley, 1827-1890, comic writer and illustrator, wrote under the pseudonym of "Cuthbert Bede", was educated at Durham University; ordained 1850. He contributed regularly to Punch and other periodicals. His most popular book was The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green, An Oxford Freshman, illustrated by the author, London, 1853. The present work, Photographic Pleasures, first appeared in book form in 1854 (published by Day & Son), and was re-published the following year by Thomas McLean. Parts of the work first appeared in "Punch". Cuthbert Bede's manuscript reminiscences about the work are quoted in M.H. Spielmann's "History of "Punch" (1895): "Photography being a novelty in 1853, Mark Lemon readily accepted my proposal to introduce it into "Punch," and accordingly, the first four caricature illustrations of photography that appeared were in "Punch" between May and August 1853. One of these [the frontispiece] represented "The Portrait of an Eminent Photographer who has just succeeded in focusing a view to his Complete Satisfaction." He was depicted with his head under the hood, while a bull was charging him in the rear..." THE FIRST SATIRICAL BOOK ON PHOTOGRAPHY. (Book ref. 19929)   £500.00
