This issue taught the world how horses run...

Item # 657286

October 19, 1878

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Oct. 19, 1878  This now very famous serious of photos, captioned: "The Science of the Horse's Motions" done by Mr. Muybridge, taught his how a horse truly trots and gallops. Previous to these photographs it was though that horses galloped much differently, hence the unusual paintings of horses in gallop prior to this time.
Page 3 has a related article discussing the new findings, headed: "A Horse's Motion Scientifically Determined".
A truly significant issue which changed forever the way we view horses in motion. A nice display issue
Sixteen pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine from disbinding, nice condition.
