People have been creating nude images since the dawn of history. But in 1839 the daguerreotype was invented, and the world of erotic photography was born. This title charts the early years of sexually driven photographs of women in Europe and North America from the 1840s to the 1930s, offering sketches of the photographers and the models and following the evolution of technology through to mass-market saucy postcards, and reproduces hundreds of images, many of which feature full-frontal nudity.
