"Redwood and Lumbering in California Forests" first appeared in 1884 and was the first photographically illustrated book devoted to the lumbering industry. The now rare and attractive book contained 24 5 x 8-inch original albumen photographs. "One of the several innovations in book illustration in the nineteenth century was the photo-illustrated book in which the photographs were tipped on or otherwise attached to the pages. Surviving copies of this genre have become increasing scarce, yet they preserve important visual records, as this handsome work on one of the early industries in California clearly indicates." Harlan. REFERENCE: Harlan, The Two Hundredth Book, No. 174.
