About this Item: Boston: L. Prang and Co., 1876., 1876. [2],iv,48pp. of text, including two full-page maps. Fifteen chromolithographs, each on original card mounts. Folio. Publisher's half brown morocco and maroon pebbled cloth portfolio binding, with four brass clasps, upper cover stamped in gilt: "The Yellowstone Park." With original printed grey wrappers for the fifteen parts laid in. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. A complete copy of Thomas Moran's finest published work and a masterpiece of chromolithography: the greatest American color plate book of landscape scenery from the post-Civil War era. This copy is especially remarkable for containing the original wrappers, the first time that we have ever encountered them. There are fifteen wrappers, each of which has printed on the front wrapper: "The / Yellowstone / National Park. / Hayden. / Moran." The verso of the rear wrapper of each of the fifteen parts lists the plates that come with the work and explains: "each part will contain one plate and its accompanying text. The Title, Table of Contents, Preface, Introduction, and two Maps will be furnished with the last part. L. Prang & Company, Boston." The stunning views in this book are based on Thomas Moran's work during Ferdinand V. Hayden's 1871 expedition to northwestern Wyoming, the first survey of what would become Yellowstone National Park. During that summer Moran laid the basis for some of his most famous works rendered in watercolor, oil, and here in chromolithographs. These plates were the first to adequately depict the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone, and have long been considered the most skillful and striking prints of the park. Indeed, these images helped define the American West for much of the public. Louis Prang was the greatest color-printer of his day, and he declared this work his masterpiece. At the time of its production in 1876 it was certainly the most elaborate and successful work of chromolithographic printing undertaken in the United States. Printed on card using numerous lithographic stones to give remarkable depth of color, the intended result was to give the prints the appearance of the original paintings. A contemporary review in THE NATION declared the prints to bear remarkable likeness to the original watercolors, "an accuracy which we do not think could have been surpassed in any country." The review continues by praising Moran's artistic sense, "the boldness and facility of the drawing are really impressive." Another reviewer termed the work "a genuine triumph of American graphic art." Moran himself praised Prang's efforts, writing to him in 1876: "It is in every respect a most sumptuous & magnificent work.It seems to me that Chromo- Lithography has, in your hands, attained perfection so skillfully have you reproduced every shade and tone of color of the originals." The work's publication marked "the beginning of [Prang's] dominance of the finest American chromolithographic work in the last quarter of the century" (STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER). Bennett concurs that the book is "marvelously reproduced.hand work could never give the effect of perspective and distance achieved in the towering scenes reproduced here." McClinton declares Prang's work to be a "monument of American bookmaking" and the "prints have never been surpassed as examples of the best American chromolithography.unexcelled among illustrations of the Far West." Kinsey aptly sums up Moran's efforts: "Had he done nothing else, Moran would be remembered for this series, which remains a landmark in publishing history." Issued in a limited edition with the prints loose in a portfolio (as here), and thus easily extracted for display, few complete copies have survived. This copy is especially notable for having the original parts wrappers, the first instance of such that we have ever encountered. HOWES H338, "b." GRAFF 1830. EBERSTADT 127:310. BENNETT, p.80. K.M.
