"Traveling the Pennsylvania Railroad" edited by John C. Van Horne and Eileen E. Drelick. In the 1890s Philadelphia's preeminent photographer, William H. Rau, was commissioned to take more than 450 photographs on the routes of the Pennsylvania Railroad in order to promote travel on the railway to the general public. Using a mammoth view camera that made 18 x 22 inch glass negatives, Rau produced a spectacular series of images for the Railroad's promotional use. This volume reproduces almost 100 of the photographs, sepia toned, carefully selected for their historical and artistic significance, as full-page quadtone plates, capturing the impact of the originals as closely as possible. 2002, hard bound, 260 pages, illustrated, dust jacket, near-mint condition. Published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.
