About This Image
Distributed by the New York Graphic Society [for the] Albright-Knox Art Gallery [and the] Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boston, 1975. Hardcover 260 pages. Profusely illustrated with reproductions of black-and-white photographs. Bibliography and index. First edition. Beautifully printed exhibition catalogue, focusing on the work of pioneer Western photographers Carleton Watkins, Timothy O"Sullivan, Eadward Muybridge, Andrew Joseph Russell, and William Henry Jackson. The commentary provides a comprehensive overview of the esthetic and scientific climate that fostered both a fascination with the landscape of the American West and a sophisticated means of visually recording it. Tan blind-stamped cloth. By Weston Naef in collaboration with James Wood and an essay by Therese Thau Heyman. Subtitled The Rise of Landscape Photography in the American West, 1860-1885, it is a superb study of this slice of American history and place. Very Good in VG dust jacket with closed tears and a little sunned (as usual) on the spine, still an excellent copy.
