This week's featured book--Illinois College of Photography : Effingham, Illinois 1905-1906--was discovered in the UIUC Library's collection on the Internet Archive by a man from Effingham, who writes "I am currently renovating a Queen Anne home, built in 1892, that is the only surviving building of the Illinois College of Photography. The College is of major significance as it was the first international college of photography in the world. It also continued where others failed, spanning from the early 1890's until 1932. The college was attended by students from every state in the US, every province in Canada, and 52 foreign countries. I have been actively collecting and documenting the history of this home, which has aided in the renovation. I had found other books from the college, but yours was of major significance, because it was the oldest I had come across. It offered excellent insight about the home and college. I am extremely grateful to you for making this book available online, allowing me to learn more of my home's rich history."
