Birth of the motion picture
One evening in December in 1895, a crowd of Parisians gathered to see the world change: It was the first public presentation of a device called the Cinematographe. Unimpressed, the audience watched as an image of a street was projected onto a screen. But when a horse suddenly came into view, pulling a cart, they were stunned. They knew they had seen the future. The motion picture had been born.

This only falls short of a five because it's so beautifully and bountifully illustrated that I want a coffee table edition. Text is excellent and comprehensive, with a very nice selection of retrospective writings at the end from the original practitioners themselves. Read full review
