Nevada City: Carl Mautz Publishing, 2013. First edition. Tall octavo. xvi, 229, [1] pp. Profusely illustrated. Publisher's brown cloth with gilt spine and cover lettering, pictorial dust jacket. New. One of 25 signed and numbered copies with an original print made from a calotype negative by the author tipped in. "In this volume Hanlon turns conventional photographic history inside out, restoring American photography to its proper place among the great early traditions. Too often the United States is seen as a provincial player in calotype photography; a poor cousin to the Britons who invented the technique and the French who perfected it. In this book, we see early American photography as a vital part of that traditionÑcreative, dynamic, and influential. Accessibly written and exquisitely researched, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in photography and its origins. In addition to being a great reference work, it dramatically expands our understanding of the field." Phillip Prodger Ð C ... Read more

Pasadena, CA: N.p., 1922. This ALS is written by hand in ink on three sheets of paper (rectos only). It is written from Sharp at his Pasadena residence to Cornelius O'Brien of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and dated January 6th of 1922. Two small diagrams drawn in the text. Very legible and in excellent condition. The letter is written by Sharp to a customer of his, a Mr. Cornelius O'Brien, a banker and prominent citizen of Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Mr. O'Brien bought a Sharp painting ("The Chief's Son") and had inquired of Sharp of the proper frame in an earlier letter. Apparently Sharp and O'Brien both bought the same frame and were pleased with them. But the letter then evolves into a mini-history lesson on both Sharp and Native Americans. At the beginning he writes "I generally go to my cabin & studio at foot of Custer Battle Field in the Crow Country, Montana.. but Mrs. Sharp's health is not robust so we came here [1481 Carson St., Pasadena). In April we go to our home- Taos, NM. Most of my pictures are painted ... Read more

New York: L. H. Mace & Co., 1899. First edition. Quarto. 44 pp. with full pages photographic illustrations of baby carriages on all but 4 pages. Publisher' brown wrappers with company name in raised gold lettering and title in white. A bit of edge wear and an old faint tidemark to outer lower corner (about an inch) but a very good copy. One is tempted to think that the excessive coddling of youngsters is a Millennial thing; not so. These carriages are excessively luxurious and with prices to reflect that. Carriage No. 794 is a work of art, very rococo in from and lined with satin and silk, and it is priced a modest $54 (about $1600 in today's dollars). OCLC records no copies.
