Large 8vo, black cloth, green lettering to front board and spine. "Here is a collection of the choicest of the many lovely photographs for which "Jay" has been responsible during the years of his connection with his paper, Saturday Night. A superb camera artist of international reputation, "Jay" provides in Camera Conversations a textual accompaniment to his photographs which is at once thoroughly satisfying from the point of view of technical knowledge, and delightful as a book to read. The author travelled extensively in Canada and in the West Indies and the photographic reproductions include those of sights and scenes to be found in rural Ontario, Old Quebec, the Gaspé Peninsula, the Maritime seaboard, and the Caribbean Sea. There are exquisite studies in child photography and nature scenes, while the examples of the camera applied to industry are as exciting as they are revealing. . . . The book, in additional to its delightful text and equally delightful photographs is a complete manual of information on what the camera will do alike in the most amateur hands and the most practised."
