How to Buy Photographs (Christie's Collectors Guides)
by Stuart Bennett
Publisher's Description
A guide to collecting--and thus buying--photographs is only as good as its author is knowledgeable. Stuart Bennett instituted the first full-fledged photography departments at Sotheby's in New York in 1974 and subsequently moved to London to preside over Sotheby's office there. In 1980 he became an antiquarian bookseller and is now based in Bath. He is thus well-equipped to write on all aspects of collecting photography. Both nineteenth- and twentieth-century processes and artists are discussed. Also included is a fascinating account of how the market works, and of the various collecting trends from the 1850s to the present.
