    Includes "12 Photogravure plates with 18 illustrations from photographs of Adirondack scenery...Printed by the N.Y. Photo-Gravure Co., N.Y. This, by far, is Seneca Ray Stoddard's most important book: it contains most of his best examples, and the photogravures are wonderfully printed.

Stoddard. Forms part of the David A. Hanson Collection of the History of Photomechanical Reproduction. Photogravure from a photograph is pasted on cover as title. less
