Features: First Edition, thus. No laterprintings mentioned. A very rare hardcover edition. This volume presents 78 paintings by William Bradford (1823-1892) in full color, from early ship portraits and harbor scenes to the Arctic views that would earn him the accolade "Painter of the Polar World." Three authoritative essays provide new information on a career that began in the whaling port of New Bedford in the 1850s, included seven voyages to Labrador and the Arctic in the 1860s, and later attracted the patronage of Queen Victoria in London and railroad barons in San Francisco. Other subjects discussed include the development of Bradford's painterly style and his interest in photography, as depicted in his heavily illustrated volume The Arctic Regions, published in London in 1873. Richard C. Kugler is director emeritus of the New Bedford Whaling Museum in Massachusetts. Other contributors include Adam Greenhalgh and Erik A.R. Ronnberg Jr.
