Powell Survey, Utah
John K. Hillers
A "boudoir" (so-called) size yellow mount stereo view (4-1/4x7"), from the Wheeler Expedition, 1874. The view is listed as #43 in the series, and is described on the reverse as being a characteristic ruin of the Pueblo San Juan, New Mexico."
Credited to Timothy O'Sullivan, the view shows two unidentified men from the expedition, one of whom may be a photographer, and a large view camera on the ground. One panel of the view appears as a full-page illustration (p.304) in the 1965 book by James D. Horan, Timothy O'Sullivan, America's Forgotten Photorgapher.
The view has a full explanatory note imprinted on the veverse, and the front carries the imprint of the Wheeler Survey. This was O'Sullivan's last stint as a government photographer before returning to New York. Excellent condition throughout, and scarce. $325.00
