The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.

Photographs by Oscar Gustave Rejlander. Written by Charles Darwin with a new introduction by Konrad Lorenz.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1965. 372 pp., 21 b&w engravings (some after photographs), 30 b&w halftones, 5¼x8".

First published in 1872, Darwin's classic treatise was illustrated with the work of English photographer Oscar Gustave Rejlander, known for his allegorical photographs. The images illustrated many of the emotions that Darwin explored in his theories of expression. Employing self-portraits, documentary photographs of babies, and photographs of friends, Rejlander showed fear, spite, sadness, horror, joy, and other feelings. This book reproduces the 30 original quaint and sometimes bizarre photographs, in small but readable halftones.
