The photographs of California landscapes, by Watkins, are too well known and appreciated to require an extended notice here. The point of sight in most of the views is chosen with rare judgement--points representing the finest combination of lines and picturesque beauty. This excellence, added to many others, place them high in the catalogue of superior productions. [P. 68.] Special premium for mountain views. [P. 69.]
