    Multivolume Catalog of 19th century photographs

    I once came across a multivolume catalog of 19th century photography. I have forgotten the name of it. Can anyone help me?
    Thanks in advance

    Could it be Shorpy "The American Historical Photo Archive"? https://www.shorpy.com/

    Thanks everyone but I’d was a bound set of volumes. These suggestions are great resources.

    If you are thinking of just the United States, then you might be thinking of
    The Origins of American Photography. Yale University Press, 2007. ISBN 9780300122862
    and
    An American Century of Photography: From Dry-Plate to Digital, The Hallmark Photographic Collection. Harry N Abrams, 1995. ISBN 978-0810919648

    I have the Hallmark book coming for $5.33 in VGC

    The Yale book is still available new and used from $40, it will have to wait
