About this Item

1 p. 3 1/2Ó x 7 1/8Ó [Negatives Taken September 15 and November 13, 1864]. The first stereo views of the moon were made from Rutherford's negatives (taken at different times to maximize the stereo effect) by the Bierstadt Brothers (Charles and Edward) of New Bedford They were so successful that other photographers obtained permission to issue copies. Numerous piracies were issued by other photographers. The Bierstadt Brothers began as Civil War photographers. Some of their earliest views were photographed by brother Albert Bierstadt, notably the Landers Expedition to the American West in 1859. They also issued Draper's stereo view of the full moon, taken in 1865, publication of which was continued by Charles Bierstadt and later the Underwoods until 1912. Bierstadts started out in New Bedford, MA, from 1860 to 1866. They then separated, selling their negatives to S. F. Adams, Edward and his sister Eliza moving to New York City, while Charles moved to Niagara, NY and continued extensive stereoscopic publication. In the 1880Õs, he sold his negatives to Underwood & Underwood, who continued to publish them into the 20th century. Charles BierstadtÕs views of Niagara Falls in all seasons are among the best published. Very Good. Darrah, Stereo Views, p.165. Images mounted on light orange card. Bookseller Inventory # 5088
