    Reference Books

I have posted a separate list of reference books. The list provides publishing information plus a brief description.

He also publishes a 3 volume Daguerreian Registry of pre 1860 photographers operating in the States. You can e-mail John at john@craigcamera.com or browse his inventory at http://www.craigcamera.com.
