William Henry Jackson's The Pioneer Photographer.
Photographs by William Henry Jackson. Text by Bob Blair and Howard R. Driggs.
Museum Of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, 2005. 248 pp., numerous black-and-white illustrations, 11x8½".
Of the many published accounts to come out of William Henry Jackson's long career, 'The Pioneer Photographer, first published in 1929, is widely accepted as Jackson's most trusted autobiography of his early pioneering days and his first eight years (1870-1878) as the official photographer for the U.S. Geological Survey. This reconstruction of Jackson's classic work, long out of print, presents one hundred sixty photographs and early drawings, paintings and lithographs by America's best-known landscape photographer, drawing on Jackson's diaries, other published accounts, and importantly his annotations of 'The Pioneer Photographer to create a complete and multidimensional view of the unfolding nineteenth century American West. Editor Bob Blair has significantly expanded Jackson's original autobiography, reprinted her in full with the author's annotations, with seventy additional photographs, drawings, and painting, and extensive excerpts from Jackson's writings, much of the new material drawn from archives and historical collections and never before published.
