A bit heavy at 5 pounds and may require extra postage. A comprehensive overview of the work of the most important American photographer of the nineteenth century, Carleton E. Watkins. Carleton E. Watkins, born in 1829, is considered one of the greatest photographers of the American West. Traveling the western United States, he made thousands of mammoth and imperial plate photographs of the Yosemite Valley, Columbia River, the Sierra Nevada, and the Pacific Coast in Oregon. His pictures of Yosemite Valley served an essential role in Congress' establishing Yosemite as a National Park in 1864.
