I'm very happy to announce that we will soon be hosting a sale of American photography curator Keith F. Davis's magnificent 2007 book The Origins of American Photography. The book is the companion volume to An American Century of Photography (1999) from our previous sale, and is similar to it in size, scope, and quality.
The full title is The Origins of American Photography: From Daguerreotype to Dry-Plate, 1839-1885: The Hallmark Photographic Collection at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. As soon as I got my copy of American Century, last Winter, I bought Origins from Amazon. The two make a matched set.
Like last time, the price will be very low and an extremely good value. We will be selling brand new books, surplus from the Museum Store's stock in storage.
I've very pleased about this. These two books together comprise the most thorough and up-to-date history of American photography, with a very readable text and copious amounts of outstanding illustrations. More news as I have it.
See you Monday! Have a nice weekend—and take some pictures if you can.
