Praise For…


"A monumental achievement in the pictorial historiography of 19th-century America, loaded with new images and data, this will be an indispensable resource for students of photography and U.S. history."—Library Journal



"Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs is among the most important books ever devoted to the history of photography."—Jed Perl, The New Republic 

 

"The rare piece of scholarship that takes a known figure and substantially alters our understanding of him. The result . . . is a revelation: A strong argument that Watkins is more than a familiar photographer, he was the first great all-American artist."—Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes
