The Encyclopedia of Early Cinema is a unique reference work on the first twenty-five years of the cinema's international emergence, approximately from the early 1890s to the mid-1910s. This encyclopedia covers all aspects of scholarship on early cinema, both traditional and revisionist. Hundreds of entries have been commissioned from internationally recognized specialists. Entries range in length from short factual articles to full essays that offer clear and stimulating discussions of the key issues, people, practices, and phenomena of early cinema. A thematic list of entries is a useful guide through the book, and all entries contain detailed cross-references. The longer articles have considered suggestions for further reading, which are complemented by a general bibliography of specialized works on early cinema.
