This monumental work covers 20,000 plus photographers working in twenty–seven western U. S. states and Canadian provinces, plus itinerants who traveled throughout these areas. Carl Mautz has been compiling and collecting information and photographs since 1972 and is widely recognized in the field. His research has been augmented by the work of experts in many of the regions covered by this book.
There is an alphabetical index by state, province or category of all photographers listed; a comprehensive bibliography; an essay from the 1997 edition of this book on collecting imprints, plus identifying and categorizing information on photographs including manuscript notes, stamps, logos and ethnicity; plus a dating guide and glossary by photo historian Jeremy Rowe.
