About this Item

0-89326-095-9. First edition, so stated. 249 p. The introduction to this book says, "From 1898 to 1908, Sumner W. Matteson crisscrossed North America making photographs. Unlike his more famous contemporaries-Edward S. Curtis or William Henry Jackson-Matteson was primarily a photojournalist who charmed his way into people's work places social celebrations. Equipped with George Eastman's revolutionary Kodak camera and flexible roll film, Matteson was able to produce some of the first photographic essays on the changing American West, including remarkable sequences on Hopi ceremonials in Arizona, wild horse roundups in Montana, and salmon fishing on the Columbia River. During his ten year career, Matteson traveled more than 25,000 miles and made nearly 12,000 photographs, documenting some of the great adventures of the early 20th Century." There is extensive biographical information about Matteson, with numerous photos, as well as the wonderful documentary photographs. These are presented in the following sections: Southwest, Montana, Cuba, Mexico, Far West, Midwest. Includes introduction, the biographical material and photos, notes on the photographs, the Matteson bibliography, references and selected bibliography, and notes on the Matteson collections in the two museums. Soft cover, 9" x 11 3/4" horizontal octavo, high quality glossy cover and excellent reproductions on fine paper; fine; SIGNED by Casagrande, with an inscription. Bookseller Inventory # 120614LC
