A superbly illustrated catalogue is published by Lund Humphries.” — The Victorian, November 2005

The fascinating essays which make up the contents of this beautifully illustrated book suggest that the black presence in Victorian art is much greater than had hitherto been supposed… Aldridge's stunning portrait is only one of the many arresting images, photographic and otherwise, which make this book so splendid… a remarkable and engrossing book.” —Birmingham Post, March 2006

…serves as a valuable reference book, thanks to a wealth of well-documented imagery and brief biographies of sitters.” — Victorian Studies 2006

The catalogue is sensibly designed to last as a stand-alone book and will no doubt soon feature on university reading lists.” — The Victorian, March 2006
