Originally published in 1856, G.R. Fardon’s San Francisco Album is the earliest published photographic record of an American city and one of the earliest of any city in the world. With superb reproductions by Stamperia Valdonega, this book offers the first serious, comprehensive look at these images as well as of Fardon’s other known work. Includes catalogue raisonné of Fardon’s San Francisco views. Published in collaboration with Hans P. Kraus, Jr., with contributions by four distinguished photographic historians.
