Captain A. J. Russell did not photograph celebrities, run fashionable photo galleries, or publish collections of his "views"; most histories of American photography can barely stretch his biographical data into a paragraph. His peers and superiors recognized the quality of his works, but as with other unassuming photographs of the Civil War, many of his pictures were later attributed to Brady. Yet he is unquestionably a major figure in 10th-century American photography, a pioneer in every sense: he was one of the only two or three official Civil War photographers, perhaps the only one who was also a soldier; after the war he headed west to become the official photographer of the Union Pacific Railroad as it breached the frontier. Wrappers rubbed. Dover, 1982. Good/Not Applicable. (Inventory #: 2195158)
