This is the most useful addition to the general reference literature on American prints since Karen Beall's American Prints in the Library of Congress (1970). The first part catalogs chronologically the exhibits and exhibitors at the annual salons of the most important American print societies of the period, as well as print exhibits at international expositions and such key publications as Fine Prints of the Year and Fifty Prints of the Year. The second part is an alphabetical directory of artist-exhibitors.
Raymond L. Wilson (Ph.D., The Ohio University) is a regular contributor to the professional literature on American art. Most recently he organized an exhibition of prints for the Pratt Institute in New York. He is working on Prints of the American West for the University of Nebraska Press.
