The world of William Notman : the nineteenth century through a master lens by Roger Hall( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Largely forgotten today, Notman was a dominant figure of photography in the U.S. and Canada in the 1870s and '80s. His Montreal-based family firm documented a continent's prideful development through photographs of architectural triumphs, universities and the land's ascendant citizens in elaborately staged studio portraits. The authors adequately describe the Glasgow emigrant Notman's business flair and ingenious artistry, but the real excitement is provided by the 173 duotones and 70 halftones. The railroads' westward thrust, Niagara's towering suspension bridge, a Royal Artillery review, a sidewheel steamer breasting the rapids, Quebec farms and Indian villages are all brought to life again. Longfellow, Emerson, Mark Twain, Lillie Langtry, the exiled Jefferson Davis, a young George V, Sitting Bull, Buffalo Bill, scholars, statesmen and tycoons posed for Notman cameras. A striking curiosity to modern eyes are the composite portraits of "Confederate Commanders, 1883" or a "Yale College group" which combine photos of individuals against an illustrated background with surprisingly effective results."-- Publisher's Weekly via Amazon.ca

When photography was still in its infancy, William Notman opened his first studio in Montreal in the late 1850s. By the time of his death in 1891, over 20 studios were in operation in Canada and the United States. "Not content with doing mere portraiture, he saw photography as a means of documenting history. ... Notman left behind a wealth of photographs that presented an image of Canada as a land of industry and romantic wilderness; images that persist to this day"--Container
