Illustrated with black and white photos. Exterior as shown in photo, some minor surface wear.Expertly rebacked by a professional book conservator. New cloth spine, original cloth titles laid over. Text is clean and complete.
No torn, loose or missing pages. Nice example of this very rare 19th-century American pictorial volume.
This is a mammoth book loaded with more than 250 full-page black and white photos of 19th-century America rich panoramic views, colorful street scenes, stately buildings, historic landmarks, palatial mansions, industrial wonders, the unspoiled vistas of the far west, and more. Its a grand, oversized volume of the sort that became very popular in the 1890s as the fledgling art of photography began to be incorporated into book publishing. The beauty of this particular collection is its diversity.
Its not overly focused on any one area of the country (some collections of this era tend to dwell on western lands). Youre as likely to find photos from Rhode Island as from Colorado. On one page you're looking at a Cape Cod lighthouse, on the next, a Comanche camp on the Great Plains, or a steamboat plying a sleepy Florida river. The text narrative complements the photographs, furnishing extended descriptions of the scenes depicted. Below youll find my own summary of the more than 250 photographs featured in this book.Further down the page, Ive included about sixty examples of the photos so you can see with your own eyes just how truly great they are. Go on, kick back, spend a few minutes in the 19th century. Dont miss this rare opportunity to add OUR LAND AND COUNTRY to your own personal library!
