Charles DeForest Fredricks

Cuba in the 1850s: Through the Lens of Charles DeForest Fredricks
by Robert M. Levine
Publisher's Description
"Levine considers Cuba in the late 1850s through the photographs of Charles DeForest Fredricks (1823-1894), an American whose Havana studio produced the earliest known photographs of Cuban landscapes and life, urban and rural. Photos of Cuba before the 1880s are rare, and these thirty-six albumen photographs of Cuban landscapes, taken in the mid- and late 1850s, offer glimpses of the mid-nineteenth-century island obtainable nowhere else."--the publisher.
