Condition: VERY GOOD ANTIQUE CONDITION. Professionally and expertly restored. Rebacked with new red leather spine, original leather-covered boards reconditioned. Hinges and binding fully repaired, sure to last for generations. Text and illustrations in very good condition. A beautiful example of this very rare 117-year-old collection of American photographic images. EMINENTLY GIFT-WORTHY.
Please Note, this is the DELUXE EDITION of “GLIMPSES OF AMERICA.” It contains additional chapters and approximately 200 PHOTOS not featured in the standard 350-page cloth edition.
In the 1890s, renowned author named J. W. Buel gathered a group of America’s best outdoor photographers, loaded them into a special railroad car, and set out to photograph the natural wonders of America while they were still largely unspoiled. Thanks to his monumental effort, today we can enjoy these rare glimpses of our land as it appeared to the pioneers and the emigrants who headed west and saw these same sights from the jouncing seats of their covered wagons, stagecoaches and railroad cars.
This enormous collection of Buell’s photographs includes views from all over America – New England, the Middle Atlantic States, the sultry South, the Midwest -- but pays special tribute to the “new West” beyond the Mississippi: Colorado, Utah, California, the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, Arizona, Idaho, etc. A good portion of the book also focuses on America’s natural wonders: the Grand Canyon – or the “Grand Canon of the Colorado,” as the author refers to it – Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
Many of the photos in this book are in large, full-page format, creating stunning views of vistas that have long since passed into memory – and others, which, while they have been preserved in the form of national parks, have inevitably changed to keep up with demands of the modern world. Here, in these pages, young America still exists in all of its unspoiled beauty.
The photos themselves are reproduced in a sepia-like tint known as “royal purple.” Several selected plates were printed with a slightly different, more natural tint.
The nearly 400 photos are accompanied by Buel’s narrative text and descriptive captions, explaining his journeys and all that he witnessed with his own eyes.
In order to give you the most accurate description of this rare and extraordinary book, I have provided some helpful details below, starting with a summary of the Contents. For your convenience, and for those interested in specific views, I have also prepared a summary of the photos included in this volume, specially arranged by state or area of interest. You can see some of these historic images for yourself further down this page.
All of this is to help you make an informed decision when offerding. I hope you’ll take a few moments to have a look.
