About this Item

Gold string-tied binding, 12 tipped-in color plates, printed on one side of leaf only, with captioned titles, from photographs by T.J. Hileman, who opened his first photography studio in Kalispell, Montana following his graduation from the Effingham School of Photography, Chicago, in 1911. The twelve views are as follows: Two Medicine Lake from Chalets; Lake St. Mary and Going-to-the Sun Mountain; Lake St. Mary from Going-to-the Sun Chalets; St. Mary's Falls; Many Glacier Region; Grinnell Mountain from Many Glacier Hotel; Iceberg Lake; Cracker Lake; Josephine Lake and Grinnell Glacier (two views); Waterton Lake; and Glen and Crosley Lakes from Indian Pass. The photographs, which were probably hand colored prior to printing, measure 9.75" x 6.25" each and are mounted on heavy cream-colored paper stock measuring 13.75" x 10.5", with incised areas for the photograph and the engraved caption. Each bears a copyright by Hileman. The Glacier Natural History Association owns 32 of Hileman's photograph albums and over 1000 of his negatives. Bound in original hand-painted cover showing a view of Grinnell Mountain from Many Glacier Hotel, with woodblock printed cover title. Fine, handsome production. Bookseller Inventory # 015485
