Erste Ausgabe. - "Bond's most enduring fame, however, rests on his enthusiastic experimentation with stellar photography and his perceptive anticipation of its potential... His pioneering daguerreotype work, undertaken from 1847 to 1851 in cooperation with his father, resulted in the first photograph of a strar, Vega. Bond's 1957 experiments with wet collodion photography achieved still greater success. With considerable justification Edward S. Holden called him 'the father of celestial photography'" (DSB). - Stempel auf Titel, sonst wohlerhalten. - DSB 2, 284
