Abstract:

Vol. includes "24 photogravure illustrations from photographs of Catskill Mountain scenery. Plates are uncredited, but by the Photo-Gravure Co., New York. ... This very fine group of Catskill photographs was very likely photographed by Ernest Edwards. A small photogravure of his is published in The Photographic Times (1894) that clearly is from this series. This book is interesting from another point of view: the photogravures are not listed in the plate list, many of the plates listed are not in the book, and the edition seems rather stitched together. All examined copies of this book are like this one. Many of the best photomechanical books of this period were productins of the Joseph Knight Co."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 118
