Great Photographers of the American West by Eva Weber $18
11 x 14 inches 112 pages, 1993. Excellent quality reproductions on high-quality coated paper. Beautiful Dust-jacket.
This volume features more than 80 glorious images of the pristine beauty and native inhabitants of the American West taken by the greatest photographers of their time: Ansel Adams, Edward S Curtis, Alexander Gardner, Laura Gilpin, William Henry Jackson, Eadweard Muybridge, Timothy O’Sullivan, and others. i.e. Solomon D. Butcher, F. J. Haynes, John Hillers, Andrew J. Russell, William Soule, Adam Clark Vroman, Ben Wittick.
In the second half of the 19th century, photographers ventured into the American West to record for posterity its majestic pristine beauty, unusual land formations, native inhabitants, and development. By responding to the nation's growing interest in the West, these intrepid photographers not only shaped and influenced America's image of herself at the time, but also left us in future generations a bountiful legacy of visual images that provide a remarkable historic record of the land and its people.
In an attempt to preserve dramatic views of nature prompted the work of Carleton Watkins, and Edward Muybridge, who first traveled to Yosemite from San Francisco in the 1860. These and other photographs of the grandeur of the West invoke the nation's highest aesthetic ideals, deepest religious convictions, and optimism about the future of America.
At the same time other photographers, a number of whom had honed their skills by documenting the Civil War, went West to join government railroad-sponsored expeditions. Timothy O'Sullivan Andrew Russell, Alexander Gardner, William Henry Jackson, John Hiller's, and others recorded the region's magnificent mountain scenery and unique wonders, heroically risking their lives to capture for science impasse clarity the West distinctive features. Decades later, Ansel Adams assume the mantle of the pioneering landscape photographers.

Robert A. Sobieszek, The Art of Persuasion, A History of Advertising Photography $15
9 x 12 inches 208 pages
Like new except for my name is embossed on the cover page inside the book
Advertising photographs are so much with us today that the artistry and skill of the photographers who make them are often taken for granted. In reality, many great photographers-including Edward Steichen, August Sander, Lewis Hine, Richard Anodyne, and Annie Leibovitz-have made photographs for advertisements.
Author Sovieszek includes these artist and 100 more in the first in-depth history of advertising photography. He traces the evolution of the photographic image in advertising from its beginnings as a straightforward illustration for 19th century posters and trade albums to its rapid development in the 20th century under the influences of both social realism and Island guard art. He explores a post-World War II boom in consumer product advertising, especially in America, and probes beyond the experimental and sophisticated photographic age of today. The author is a curator at George Eastman House, Rochester New York
187 illustrations including 81 plates in full color 1988.

Beautiful condition with Dust Jacket, 334 pages. First edition
This book is well illustrated, clearly written and a most useful source of knowledge about lenses. It will interest historians of photography, camera collectors and amateur photographers. --NEW SCIENTIST
"Kingslake has written] an instructive and entertaining account of the development of lenses from the earliest simple double convex lens to the meniscus, to doublets and triplets, achromats and apochromats and even aspherics, and including the most elaborate telephoto and zoom lenses used today."--John N. Howard, OPTICS NEWS
"Kingslake has done an outstanding job of writing a readable book... Kingslake is today's first name in optics. His new book belongs in every camera collector's library." --SHUTTERBUG MAGAZINE
"Rudolph Kingslake is eminently qualified to write this book...It is...a rich source of references to books, papers, and most importantly patents, where much of lens design knowledge is archived." JOURNAL OF MODERN OPTICS
The lens is generally the most expensive and least understood part of any camera. In this book, Dr. Kingslake traces the historical development of various types of lenses from Gary's invention of photography in 1939 to lenses commonly used today.
In the early lens still being manufactured for use in low-cost cameras to design made possible through such innovations as lens coating, rare-Earth glasses, and computer aided lens design and testing, the author details each major advance design and fabrication. The book explains how and why each new lens site was developed
most of them have since been abandoned this authoritative history of lens technology also includes brief biographies of several standing lens designers and manufacturers of the past.
Paul Hickman and Terence Pitts, Preface By Beaumont Newhall , GEORGE FISKE: YOSEMITE PHOTOGRAPHER ©1980.
New in original shrink wrap.
George Fiske (October 22, 1835 – October 21, 1918) was an American landscape photographer.
Fiske was born in Amherst, New Hampshire and moved west with his brother to San Francisco. He apprenticed with Charles L. Weed and worked with Carleton E. Watkins, both early Yosemite photographers. Fiske and his wife moved to Yosemite in 1879 and lived there until he committed suicide in 1918. Fiske was living alone when he shot himself and he often told his neighbors he was "tired of living." Most of his negatives were destroyed when his house burned in 1904.
Years later, when photographer Ansel Adams was a boy, his Aunt Mary gave him a copy of In the Heart of the Sierras when he was sick. The book piqued his interest enough to persuade his parents to vacation in Yosemite National Park in 1916. Most of the photographs in the book are by George Fiske.
After Fiske's death, his remaining negatives were acquired by the Yosemite Park Company and stored neglected in a sawmill attic, which burned in 1943. Ansel Adams suggested they be stored safely in the Yosemite Museum fireproof basement, but his suggestion was ignored. "If that hadn't happened", said Adams, "Fiske could have been revealed today, I firmly believe, as a top photographer, a top interpretive photographer. I really can’t get excited at [Carleton] Watkins and [Eadweard] Muybridge—I do get excited at Fiske. I think he had the better eye." (Hickman & Pitts, 1980).
