"The cased photographic portrait was fashionable from tthe early 1840s until the end of the 1860s ... Case Histories examines the history of the portrait and its packaging as component parts of a single integrated industry. The book looks at the structure of the case, and its evolution, as well as exploring the range of materials used in case manufacture, the manufacturing techniques employed, and the emergence of moulding technology."--Book jacket
