"This catalog, from one of the premier builders of American locomotives, is an outstanding example of the use of photography in 19th century advertising. Along with the Baldwin locomotive catalog of 1871/2, and the Grant catalog of the same period this is one of the earliest. The 22 collotypes from photographs are uncredited which is unusual for this early date in the US. As early collotypes they are extremely well done and show the work of master craftsmen. They are printed on light uncoated paper which is also somewhat unusual for the period."--Clark file 2012
