by Katherine Manthorne
This book offers a fascinating combo: dozens of never-before-published photos taken by professional (female) photographers during the late 19th century, and the in-depth history of these women's work in American and photography history. Dispells the misconception that 19th century photography was largely the story of male achievement. It brings to life a representative sampling of the hundreds of women photographers working in major cities and small towns across the US beginning in the 1850s.
