AMERICA’S WONDERLANDS. A Pictorial and Descriptive History of Our Country’s Scenic Marvels as Delineated by Pen and Camera: More Than 500 Magnificent Photographic Views. By James W. Buel. Published in 1893 by the Hunt & Eaton, New York. 12” x 9” hardcover. Illustrated with more than 500 photos. 503 pages.
Condition: A very valuable title, but strictly a reading/reference/rebinding copy. The text block is loose from the boards, with evidence of a previous attempt to rebind. The text block is one piece except for a signature consisting of pages 224-240, which is loose but laid in. There are some old tape repairs in the gutter at either side of this signature but these have since pulled away. The outer page edges of this signature are also worn from having protruded from the book for so long. A couple pages have tears of about 2" from the edge, however the majority of text and photographic pages are in good, clean, bright condition. This book needs some professional help. Or you can enjoy it as is. Either way, the photographs inside are extraordinary. (By way of comparison, I am presently offering another copy of this book on for $450 -- see No. 350781498424.) This could be a great opportunity for you to get this very rare, highly sought-after and historically important 19th-century photo book at a better price.
This book is an amazing collection of more than 500 scenic photos of America’s “wonderlands” in the early 1890s, when the great open spaces of this country were still unspoiled and largely uninhabited. Here are the deserts, prairies and mountains of the West just as they were when crossed by emigrants en route to California. Here are the Pacific Northwest and the coast of Alaska, raw, cold, and untamed. The hills of Dakotas, the dells of the Wisconsin, the Mormon lands of Utah, the great rivers of the Midwest, the final refuges of the Blackfeet, the Sioux and other Indian tribes. Our national parks: Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon … New York, New England, the deep South … and much, much more.
Author James W. Buel and his party visited all of these places to make this book possible. The photos are accompanied by a descriptive narrative reflecting the author’s experiences and touching upon the historical significance of each place.
The photos themselves are reproduced in a sepia-like tint said to have been called “royal purple.” There are also several plates described in the Contents as “Cameragraphs.” An early form of colorization appears to have been applied to these plates.
In order to give you the most accurate description of this wonderful book, I have provided some helpful details below. For the benefit of buyers who are historians, etc. – and who routinely use books like this for specific research – I have painstakingly prepared a summary of the more than 500 photos in the book, arranged by region. You can see of these beautiful images for yourself at the bottom of 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.
