Description

The Wonders of the Yosemite Valley, and of California was written by Dr. Samuel Kneeland. Dr. Kneeland was a Boston physician founding member and later professor of zoology at MIT. He wrote several books, including this, from careful diaries kept during his zoological-collecting expeditions. This book is from two trips by Dr. Kneeland to California, taken sometime during 1869 to 1871. Full illustrated Book. The photographs were supposely taken by John P. Soule of Massachusetts, although there's disagreement as to whether he traveled to California or just purchased the negatives. Kneeland, a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guide books to the Yosemite region. It is an especially attractive book due to the inclusion of an excellent series of mounted photographic images.show more
