Adventures of America, 1857-1900 : a pictorial record from Harper's weekly by John Atlee Kouwenhoven( Book )

11 editions published between 1928 and 1998 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an informal history of life in the United States during the latter half of the nineteenth century. The text is designed both to explain and interpret the pictures, as captions would do, and to provide as connected and interesting a survey of social history as possible. The pictures have been chosen from Harper's Weekly, the most representative illustrated journal of the time. The triumph of the Weekly was its artists--men like Thomas Nast, Winslow Homer, C. A. Reinhart, E. A. Abbey, Frederick Remington, and their compeers, who perected journalistic illustration."-- Preface

9 editions published between 1950 and 1953 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walt Whitman (1819-92) approached his poetic career with high expectations. He dared to hope that he might become the poet of America. For many years the reception was cool enough to shake even Whitman's boundless optimism. But the twentieth century has justified him. We now recognize Whitman not only as a major writer, but as unique among American poets for his innovativeness, for his influence on world literature, and for the fullness with which he expressed American values."--Lawrence Buell, from the introduction.
