Edison the invention of the movies ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893. Perhaps none of the component parts were strictly new, but the ability of Edison and his staff to reorganize them for a specific purpose was an extraordinary cultural achievement. In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland

D. W. Griffith, American film master by Iris Barry ( Book )
10 editions published between 1965 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
D. W. Griffith, most famous for his controversial film Birth of a Nation, was one of the undisputed pioneers of the film industry. This illustrated monograph, first published in 1940, traces Griffith's rise from an obscure actor-poet to the most imaginitive and resourceful film producer of his time. In this facsimile edition of a classic, Iris Barry gives a critical evaluation of the man under whose aegis the basic principles of the art of motion pictures were first fully developed. As Barry writes in the book's conclusion, "...the men who make films today know who it was that taught them the basis of their craft."
