Brilliantly illuminating the artistry, medium, and machinery of an innovative and widely practiced nineteenth-century pictorial technology, this gorgeously illustrated collaboration is a model work of detection, discovery, preservation, and interpretation. At the heart of this enterprise, the Moving Panorama of Pilgrim’s Progress exemplifies a form of popular entertainment that was as intimately connected to the growth of American fine arts as to burgeoning audiences for novel visual and performative extravaganzas. A highly recommended, significant history, sure to inform and fascinate scholars and the wider reading public alike!
