Philadelphia: Henry Carey Baird, 1860.
First edition. Item #698
Very good; wear to the corners, light chipping to the spine at headband, light foxing, but sound and sturdy. An entry in the Practical Series, and one of the less common examples. Well illustrated with a large number of engravings. An important, early title in the literature of American photography. Although not marked as such, from the estate of Alfred Cheney Johnston.
