Linton- Life in the Collections

Josuah Brown:

62) Beyond the Lines. Pictorial Reporting, Everyday Life, and the Crises of Gilded Age America.

California 2006

Linton plays only a marginal role in Josuah Brown’s survey of pictorial reporting in early American press, using the example of Leslie’s Weekly. Brown refers to him as the head of the engraving department of this very popular and widespread journal. In this context, he also mentions Linton’s polemics against the mechanisation of his craft.
