When it was sold at Sotheby's in 1974 it obtained a world record price and this book is as close as possible, with the techniques of modern printing, to being a facsimile of a major work of art of the Victorian period. All the 119 photographs have been reproduced with dazzling fidelity and skill, as have Julia Margaret Cameron's dedication to her sister and the design of the original album binding. 252pp. Size: 4to Royal (12½" x 9¾") Introduction / preface by Lord David Cecil.
