“Nature through Microscope & Camera” (1909) - The First Macro Photography in History

In 1909, Richard Kerr published a book called “Nature through Microscope & Camera”, which showed photos of macro photography created by Arthur E. Smith probably the first in history.

The photographs were “done on 12 by 10 plates directly through the microscope and camera combined as one instrument” with the negatives receiving “no ‘touching-up’ whatever.”
