-----------hardcover, about 9w x 11h inches, a Fine example, in a Fine dustjacket, ---really -this looks new, signed without inscription by Berton, 160 pages, colour and b&w photos and illustrations, includines some marilyn Monroe images and quotes, in almost 30 years of selling books this is the only copy I have seen signed and this one is in great condition, jacket is now in a hi-quality mylar protector, ---"The first man to describe this natural wonder, Father Louis Hennepin, in 1678, also provided material for the first drawing of the Falls, an engraving that wildly exaggerated the height of the twin cataracts. Scores of other artists followed to produce a visual treasure trove, showing the Falls in all its moods, in every decade and every season - locked in the ice, half obscured by spray, terrifying in some aspects, beguiling in others. Frederic Church's famous painting, reproduced in these pages, came as the climax to two centuries of remarkable art, the best of which appears in this book. But that is only a small part of the graphic story of Niagara Falls. As the author points out, at least 100 million snapshots are taken here annually by amateur photographers from all over the world. Now, Toronto photographer Paul Cosselman has added modern colour photographs to the wealth of archival material gathered for this book. The story of hydro-electric development is told graphically with forgotten photographs of the great power palaces long since boarded up or destroyed."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
