"'Beginner's Guide to Photography.' (Perken, Son and Rayment.) To the unlearned in the science of photography, this little work, which has now reached its sixteenth thousand, will prove extremely useful. The language made use of is so singularly free from technical and scientific terms that the veriest ignoramus will be perfectly able to follow with ease the instructions afforded. Every branch of the subject is touched upon at more or less length."

The Civilian

"'The Beginner's Guide to Photography,' Perken, Son and Rayment, Hatton Garden, E.C., will be found a most useful manual, and one which all who seek to penetrate the mysteries of Photography would do well to consult. Messrs. Perken, Son and Rayment are the manufacturers of the well-known 'Optimus' lenses. These lenses have been tried by many well-known authorities on photography, and they have all pronounced them excellent; and for rapidity and marginal definition they compare well with those sold at rates far beyond most amateurs."
