About this Item

Amon Carter Museum, TX. The authors show how the public’s desire to know and the new technology available created a revolution in communications, one that saw the rise of mass-circulation newspapers and a “wire service” using telegraph and steamship. The authors also explore the new art of photography, review the early daguerreotypists who may have produced the photographs, and examine more than fifty daguerreotypes from the war. Prints are examined for historical accuracy as well as artistry. Together the prints and photographs present a vivid eyewitness history of the Mexican War. Very good copy of the first edition in a very good dust jacket. 368 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 13117
