Summary This book presents readers with an examination of how human-cat relationships are depicted in early twentieth-century photography. Examining this relationship from the perspective of the photographer and the human subjects who made or appear in these photographs, the authors show that the cat photographs are valuable windows into sets of cultural values that may have existed at the time
