This reconstruction of Jackson's classic work, long out of print, presents one hundred sixty photographs and early drawings, paintings and lithographs by America's best-known landscape photographer, drawing on Jackson's diaries, other published accounts, and importantly his annotations of The Pioneer Photographer to create a complete and multidimensional view of the unfolding nineteenth-century American West. Editor Bob Blair has significantly expanded Jackson's original autobiography, reprinted here in full with the author's annotations, with seventy additional photographs, drawings, and paintings, and extensive excerpts from Jackson's writings, much of the new material drawn from archives and historical collections and never before published. - Publisher+-+408986543531ocn615202369book20050.47Jackson, William HenryWilliam Henry Jackson's "The pioneer photographer" with original text from the 1929 ed+-+4089865435+-+4089865435+-+4089865435Fri Mar 21 15:09:13 EDT 2014batch3727
