Editorial Reviews

Review

"A monumental achievement in the pictorial historiography of 19th-century America, loaded with new images and data, this will be an indispensable resource for students of photography and U.S. history."—Library Journal



"Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs is among the most important books ever devoted to the history of photography."—Jed Perl, The New Republic 

 


"The rare piece of scholarship that takes a known figure and substantially alters our understanding of him. The result . . . is a revelation: A strong argument that Watkins is more than a familiar photographer, he was the first great all-American artist."—Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes 
 
 
 
 

 



“An invaluable resource for anyone interested in U.S. photographic or landscape history.”—Monteral Gazette



“A staunchly great book.”—The Stranger



Winner of the 2012 Kraszna-Krausz Best Photography Book Award


“A lavishly illustrated, meticulously edited, engagingly written, and comprehensively researched volume.”—Choice


“This extraordinary body of work produced by photographer Carleton Watkins . . . between 1858 and 1891 constitutes one of the longest and most productive careers in 19th century American photography.”—Clickers & Flickers

For an expensive book, you are buying a lot of white paper. Certainly every mammoth plate image is cataloged, but the size of the image reproduction is too small to really enjoy. A good book design with bigger images with the same printed information and would have been much better and not increased the overall size of this tome. At least the images are all there, just use a strong magnifying glass to view them.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By ROBERT RUSS on June 20, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very well documented as to the dates, titles and location of known prints. A very large book in size and weight (10 lbs.). A very complete catalogue of some very scarce photographs by a very talented and little known photographer. The book contains small, about 2 3/4 by 3 3/4 inch copies of his works. If mammoth prints (16 by 20 inch) were included in the publication you would probably need a forklift to move it around. Worth the large bucks, at least in my case.

The book is large and the photographs are certainly smaller that their original mammoth-plate sizes. Nevertheless, Naef and Hult-Lewis have produced a remarkable product. The book’s value is in its completeness and in the information provided on each photograph. It is a spectacular reference book for anyone interested in Watkins’ work.
