Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
"[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.
