The Miracle of Analogy is the first of a two-volume reconceptualization of photography. It argues that photography originates in what is seen, rather than in the human eye or the camera lens, and that it is the world's primary way of revealing itself to us. Neither an index, representation, nor copy, as conventional studies would have it, the photographic image is an analogy. This principle obtains at every level of its being: a photograph analogizes its referent, the negative from which it is generated, every other print that is struck from that negative, and all of its digital "offspring." Photography is also unstoppably developmental, both at the level of the individual image and of medium. The photograph moves through time, in search of other "kin," some of which may be visual, but others of which may be literary, architectural, philosophical, or literary. Finally, photography develops with us, and in response to us. It assumes historically legible forms, but when we divest them of their saving power, as we always seem to do, it goes elsewhere. The present volume focuses on the nineteenth century and some of its contemporary progeny. It begins with the camera obscura, which morphed into chemical photography and lives on in digital form, and ends with Walter Benjamin. Key figures discussed along the way include Nicéphore Niépce, Louis Daguerre, William Fox-Talbot, Jeff Wall, and Joan Fontcuberta.

Among the myriad of changes that took place in Great Britain in the first half of the nineteenth century, many of particular significance to the historian of science and to the social historian are discernible in that small segment of British society drawn together by a shared interest in natural phenomena and with sufficient leisure or opportunity to investigate and ponder them. This group, which never numbered more than a mere handful in comparison to the whole population, may rightly be characterized as 'scientific'. They and their successors came to occupy an increasingly important place in the intellectual, educational, and developing economic life of the nation. Well before the arrival of mid-century, natural philosophers and inventors were generally hailed as a source of national pride and of national prestige. Scientific society is a feature of nineteenth-century British life, the best being found in London, in the universities, in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and in a few scattered provincial centres.

William Jerdan was a pivotal figure in the history of English literature, spanning the Georgian and Victorian eras. For 34 years, he was the editor of the first weekly review of literature - the London Literary Gazette - where he wrote most of the journal's critical reviews, which made or marred literary success in this period of exceptional growth in book production and rise in readership. Jerdan's convivial character and central place in English literary life caused him to be personally acquainted with almost all the creative and influential figures of his day. He was raised in the Scottish Borders where he met Robert Burns and Walter Scott. Later, Byron, Wordsworth, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Dickens, and many other luminaries played a part in his life. He was a founder member of the Royal Society of Literature and of the Garrick Club, a maverick member of the Literary Fund, and an honorary Fraserian. This first biography also discusses William Jerdan's own fiction and poetry, revealing several works not previously attributed to him. Many aspects of his colorful professional and private life are explored, including the scandalous relationship with his protegee, the famous poet L.E.L., for which he was lampooned in the satirical press. His conflicted life led him from the heights of literary and social celebrity through the Bankruptcy Court and into penury. His life at the center of literary London mirrored the violent swings in the country's political and financial affairs - events which provide the background to this extensive and revealing biography.

Volume two of British Literary Magazines begins its coverage at the dawn of the Romantic Age, when the publication of Blake's Songs of Innocence signalled the change of an era. Its coverage extends beyond what some scholars consider the end of the Romantic Age (1798 and the publication of Lyrical Ballads) and includes periodicals published through the date of Queen Victoria's accession to the British throne in 1837. Volume two includes historical essays, publication details, and bibliographic sources for eighty-five reviews, journals, illustrated magazines, and periodicals available during the period.
