"That the volume is widely known and appreciated is shown by the fact of its having reached a third edition, and we can only say that it well deserves its success. A photographer of the author's well-known skill and repute could not fail to instruct others in his art. For practical instruction in the art this book distances all competitors."—Nature.
"We are pleased to see that Capt. Abney's book of 'Instructions' has been so well appreciated as to necessitate the issuing of a third edition. This edition is in several respects an improvement upon the former two, and is, besides, illustrated by a Woodburytype of the author's picture in Windsor Forest. There is in these pages much useful matter connected with several of the processes, wet and dry, in common use; and we are pleased to find that a prominent place is given to the Washed Collodion and Gelatine Emulsion processes. The chapter on 'Defects in Negatives-their Causes and Remedies,' is very practical and valuable, and will be found exceedingly acceptable to many inexperienced readers. There are numerous hints and dodges' to be found in this manual, which has our best wishes for its success."—British Journal of Photography, Dec. 22, 1876.
"The book before us, we have no hesitation in saying, is the most complete manual on Photography that we have seen. Capt. Abney is a thorough master of his subject, both in its widest theories and its minutest details. He never shirks any of the numerous difficulties which beset the science, but meets them fairly, and does his best to solve them The work is preeminently scientific. It is not one of the high-flown theoretical handbooks of which we see so many, but a rainstaking manual, entering into the smallest and minutest particulars in describing the various systems. Capt. Abney's discussions of the 'Emulsion Process' are remarkable for the masterly style in which they are conducted, and for the clearness with which the particulars are set forth. In conclusion, we can only state that the manual is a most valuable contribution to the science of photography, and doubtless, from the well-known merits of Capt. Abney, will have great success."-Derbyshire Advertiser, December 15, 1876.
