Carbon prints are indeed rather rare. One place where you can see quite a number of them is the Harry Ranson Research Center at the University of Texas in Austin. Most of the carbon prints in the collection are from the 19th century, and some are by some very famous photograpers, Nadar and Adolfe Braun for example. The collection also has some late 20th century Ultrastable color carbon prints by Robert McCowan, who is a very accomplished carbro printer. Robert has a web site on carbro printing that you can visit for information about his work.
