<:st>Having written many articles and three books about the history of American motion picture invention, Hendricks here presents a biography of a towering figure behind the innovators. Muybridge (1830-1904) left England for the US in his early 20s, and his work with sequential images in California and the University of Pennsylvania laid the conceptual and procedural groundwork for motion pictures, which then only awaited flexible film to be born. The 1975 edition was published by Grossman Publishers. The work is cited in Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
