Notes: Douglas Glass purchased this book directly from Doubleday & Company Publishers in London in 1951. The invoice is enclosed. The book appears to have been first inscribed to a J.W. McKinley "in appreciation of his [...] tireless enthusiasm and devoted labor for the Camera Club," and then to Douglas Glass, "This is a second placement with a colleague I hope this one sticks," in 1950.
