The Photographic Amateur 2nd edition, J. Traill Taylor, Scovill Mfg. Co., publisher (New York, NY), copyright 1883, but actually about 1885 ~5"x9", 104pp & 30pp advertising (complete)

This is a basic "how to" book of photography for the amateur enthusiast of 1883.  As such, it was the first in what would eventually be a series of over 50 titles of photographic books called The Scovill Photographic Series.  Many of the books in the series later than about 1886 were hardcover; the ones older than then appear to have been paper wraps, such as this one.
