Book Description 
Carleton E. Watkins (1829-1916) is best remembered for his large-format photographs of the American West, especially those taken in Yosemite. This new volume, the latest in the popular In Focus series, is devoted to some of his smaller and unusually shaped works, including stereographs, albumen prints, and cabinet and boudoir cards--most of which have never before been published.  
The J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of Watkins's photographs consists of 1464 pictures, making him the best-represented nineteenth-century photographer in the collection. Presented here are more than fifty of these photographs, along with commentary on each image by Peter Palmquist. The book also offers a chronological overview of the artist's life and an edited transcript of a colloquium on his career.
