Stephen Herbert (ed.), Eadweard Muybridge: the Kingston Museum Bequest

Hastings: The Projection Box, 2004

ISBN 978-1903000-07-6

160 pages, over 200 illustrations, hardback, 30x22cm

Eadweard Muybridge was born as Edward James Muggeridge at Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, in 1830, and died there in 1904. He spent much of his working life in America, where he found fame as a photographer. Muybridge’s sequence photography has been hugely influential to the present day, providing inspiration for artists around the world.

Muybridge donated and bequeathed an important collection of his work to the Royal Borough of Kingston. This book details and illustrates that collection. The material is introduced by specialists, and the book concludes with an essay based on extensive new research concerning Muybridge’s lectures and his fascinating moving image discs.

Edited and collated by Stephen Herbert, the book includes essays and other contributions from Anne McCormack, Paul Hill, Marta Braun and Stephen Herbert himself. There are over 200 illustrations, including Muybridge’s giant 13-panel photographic panorama of San Francisco, sequence photos take at the Palo Alto horse farm and University of Pennsylvania, his original slides and image discs and the unique Zoopraxiscope motion picture machine.
