Incidents of travel and adventure in the far West : with Col. Frémont's last expedition across the Rocky Mountains ; including three months' residence in Utah, and a perilous trip across the great American desert to the Pacific by Solomon Nunes Carvalho( Book )

40 editions published between 1856 and 2009 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes "1 wood engraving from art titled: Prairie on Fire. This book marks the first reference in the United States to Frederick Wilhelm von Egloffstein, who played an important role in a number of western expeditions in the late 1850s ... These trips may have helped him formulate his ideas regarding the half-tone and it may have been that he learned photography from Carvalho."--Hanson Collection Catalog, p. 19
Incidents of travel and adventure in the far West by Solomon Nunes Carvalho( Book )

17 editions published between 1857 and 2016 in English and French and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1853, an American-born Sephardic Jew, Solomon Nunes Carvalho, accepted John Frémont's invitation to join his fifth expedition to find the best overland route to California. A Baltimore artist, inventor, and daguerreotypist, Carvalho was given the job of creating a photographic record of the lands and peoples along the way. Frémont's party left the Missouri on September 14, 1853, traveled up the Kansas River, overland to the Arkansas, upriver past Bent's Fort to the Huerfano, and traversed the Sandhill Pass into the Rocky Mountains. Beset by heavy snows and intense cold, they were reduced to eating their horses and mules and the occasional beaver or porcupine while making their way in midwinter across the Grand, Green, and Sevier Rivers. Suffering from frostbite, scurvy, and dysentery, Carvalho left the expedition in Utah; spent four months among the Mormons in Salt Lake City, where he observed with keen interest their system of spiritual wives; and reached California in 1854. Carvalho became the first Jewish writer to publish accounts of the Great American West and was also one of the first people to photograph the American West. Although only one of his plates is known to survive, others became the models for wood and steel engravings that broadcast the image of the West throughout the world -- Amazon
