Pioneer photographers from the Mississippi to the continental divide : a biographical dictionary, 1839-1865
"This biographical dictionary of some 3,000 photographers (and workers in related trades) active in a vast area of North America before 1866 is based on extensive research and enhanced by over 240 illustrations, most of which are published here for the first time." "The territory covered extends from central Canada through Mexico and includes the United States from the Mississippi River west to but not including, the Rocky Mountain states. Together, this volume and its predecessor, Pioneer Photographers of the Far West, A Biographical Dictionary, 1840-1865, comprise an exhaustive survey of early photographers in North America and Central America, excluding the eastern United States and eastern Canada."
