This book which he and I have been working on for some years, will hopefully be the the most thorough history of Yellowstone stereoview photography. It will include as much biographical material as possible of the photographers and publishers that issued stereoviews of the Yellowstone country. It will also break down each print run in far greater detail than on this website. Also it will include as complete a checklist of views as possible, all broken down into print runs, boxed sets, etc. We are still planning to inventory quite a few major collections of Yellowstone stereoviews so there will be many additions. As we delve into more catalogs and historical documents we are sure to secure some new information on publishers, and perhaps some "lost" photos as well.
Most exciting will the photos themselves. Some of the images from this website will be in the book. But the majority will be different. Interesting subject matter such as hotels, people, structures, stage coaches, army views, and even some unpublished stereoview images. We hope to include hundreds of crystal clear photos that will be blown up to show every minute detail of the day. Many of these images will be published for the first time, including quite a few one-of-a-kind amateur stereoviews. Also included will be a plastic stereoviewer to allow the reader to view the bookís images in full, spectacular "stereo vision."
We welcome anyone who like to contribute images for this upcoming publication. If you would like to volunteer the use of a particular Yellowstone related stereoview image that you believe we would be interested in, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive full credit, of course. Include the photographer/publisher of the view, as well as the view title. We are looking for odd publishers, cultural views, buildings, people and less common tourists venues. We have all the major geysers, waterfalls and terraces we need. Donít worry about sending any scans, we can work out the details later. Right now we are simply in the information gathering process.
If you have any comments or suggestions regarding a book of this type please donít hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your interest.
