6 ADAMS, Ansel, and John MUIR MUIR, John ADAMS, Ansel MAUK, Charlotte E. (ed.) Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. First Edition in dustjacket
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1948, 
ADAMS, Ansel, and John MUIR. Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. Photographs byAnsel Adams. Sel;ections from the Works of John Muir. Edited by Charlotte E. Mauk. Boston : Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First Edition. Pp (12),ix-xix,(5),3-132,(2),+ 64 leaves of black-and-white plates. Large 8vo, tan cloth, brown lettering to front board and spine. "This book is an interpretation, in text and photographs, of Yosemite Valley and the Sierra Nevada range of mountains. the text is from the works of John Muir, a naturalist whosewriting reveals the excitement and beauty and strength in a world untouche d by man. the photographs were created by Ansel Adams, whose camera discovers that which lies before us all - and magically, what our eyes may fail tocommunicate to our hearts. this combination of word and image creates a st atement of grater intensity than either word or image alone. Sixty-four photographs are beautifully reproduced in this big book. Mr. Adams has chosen phrases from Muir which, facing the photographs, are perfect captions. These photographs are the work of several years, and almost all are here reproduced for the first time. The text has been taken from Mountains of California, The Yosemite, My First Summer in the Sierra, and others of Muir's best-known book. the selections have been wove into a unified description of thecountry, in all seasons and in all mods, by Miss Charlotte Mauk of Berkele y, California. The lines which delimit Yosemite on a map have no meaning onthe high watershed ridges which are the geographic boundaries of the Park. In actuality, the spirit of Yosemite depends on an environment which exten ds to the Pacific and to the clear bleak loneliness of the deserts beyond the Sierra crest. Begin with the rolling hills of the Coast Range and the wide expanse of the Central Valley. Climb, as Muir did when he was shepherding his flocks, the rugged foothills of the Sierra. See Yosemite in its high-mountain matrix; cross the Sierra to the wild and barren beauty of Mono; look at Tahoe on the north, the great ranges south of Yosemite, and the tremendous tossing wall of the east face of the Sierra. Behold mountains and quiet pools, twigs, clouds, canyons, stones - great vistas and intimate realities." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. A biography of John Muir. Selections from the Works of John Muir : I. The Sierra Nevada : The range of light; The snow and the glaciers. II. The Yosemite : Into the mountains; Characteristics of the canyons; The incomparable Yosemite; The approach to thevalley; The first view - the Bridal Veil; General features of the valley; The upper canyons; Natural features near the valley; Down the Yosemite Creek: The Yosemite Fall; A wonderful ascent; The grandeur of Yosemite Fall; The Nevada Fall; The Vernall Fall; The Illilouette Fall; The beauty of the rainbows.

With 277 black and white illustrations to text. Square 4to, red cloth with silver lettering to spine. "Hiswas a world of mountains and woodlands andthe vast, timeless reach of the western landscape. If a country as limitless as this can ever be said to have posed for its portrait, certainly the photographer behind the camera wasAnsel Adams. And now he has given us this book. Here, in his prodigiously illustrated autobiography, completed just prior to his death in 1984, is Adams' testament of a life of dedication, adventure, achievement, remarkable friendships, plainspoken wisdom, and a concern for man and nature. It is a memoir of times spent with Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Imogen Cunningham, Edwin Land, and so many more in the pantheon of the art and photography world. Here, not only in hisown words but also in photographs the world over (and many others never be fore pbulished), this extraordinary man steps forward to share with us his love of music, the beauty of the wilderness, loyalties and dreams, and thatclear-eyed vision that saw beyond the mountains the heart of America." - f rom the dustjacket.
