    I used to check out a great book from the company library where I
    worked. I left there twenty years ago, so haven't seen the book since
    then. With the many online used book stores now, I thought I'd like to
    get myself a copy of this book. I do not remember the author, but
    wonder if anyone recognizes this excellent book.

    I believe the title was simply "Color Photography". As I say, I don't
    remember the author's name, but he was "Director of Color Photography at
    Eastman Kodak". I'd say the book was written in the sixties, maybe
    fifties. Does this sound familiar to anyone? It was not a Kodak
    publication, but do not remember the publisher either (its been 20

    Was this one of the "Time-Life" series of photography books? I have it
    somewhere ...

  3. There's an Ernst Haas collection called this, but it doesn't sound like
    the book you're after (though he did shoot on Kodak film and they
    sponsored at least one Haas exhibition). You might try the excellent book
    search site at www.addall.com which has sections for both new and out of
    print books.

    I believe Henry Horenstein had one of that title:

    It going to be tough because of a common title. I put "color photography"
    into the search engine at half.com (great for used books) and came up with
    80 hits. A half to a third were published early enough to qualify as the
    one you are looking for. You might wish to try that and see if any of the
    authors names ring a bell. Then with the most likely names you could try
    using your library to interlibrary loan some of the books to see if you hit
    the one you're looking for.

    Andreas Feininger, Ernst Haas, and John Hedgecoe were around then and the
    first and last were prodigiously publishing a lot of the same material
    under titles that were very similar.

    Good luck.

    I have a copy of this book ("Color Photography: A Working Manual") but it's
    dated "First edition 1995" so it definitely isn't the one Don remembers from
    the 1960's :)

    Nope. I have several of the TL books - this was not one of them. Don't
    remember the publisher, think it may have been a McGraw Hill or
    something like that. As I remember it it had a black cover (hard

    Okay, I missed the original message, so I might be waaay off here.
    However I picked up "Kodak Guide to 35mm Photography" which has treated
    me well, although I've read very little from it (prefer to mess around
    and figure things out this way)
