PHOTOGRAPHY IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY AMERICA. Ed. by Martha A. Sandweiss. Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, 1991. Published in association with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 352 pp. with 239 ills. (17 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 91-301 ISBN 0810936593 In English.
Exploring the significant role of photography in mirroring and influencing 19th-century American culture, this substantial catalogue reproduces some 225 images (many previously unpublished) drawn from numerous museum collections in the United States, the selection encompassing portrait daguerreotypes, documentary and ethnographic studies, landscapes, panoramas and urban views, advertisements, motion studies and pictorialist compositions. Six scholarly essays discuss such topics as the impact of the daguerreotype on American literature and popular culture in the 1840s and 50s, the development of studio and mass-market photography, and the use of the medium to document the Civil War and to establish a national vision of the West.
