"[Illustrations are twenty-five heliotype] plates by the Heliotype Printing Co., Boston, from photographs by W.H. Jackson, Braun, Frith, Knudsen, Bourne & Shepard. A major example of heliotype printing and the first of what was to be a series. This seems to have been the only publication to make it to press."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 72.
