The book of photographer Eadweard Muybridge (1830–1904) that presented his iconic Animal Locomotion series in 1887. Produced under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania and encompassing thousands of photographs of humans and animals in motion, the series included more than 300 plates of nude men and women engaged in activities such as swinging a baseball bat, playing leapfrog, and performing housework-an astonishing fact given the period’s standards of propriety. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time.
