John W. Reps is the leading scholar on 19th century, Amerian city views and this is his magnum opus. Considers, as the sub-title says, “Lithographs of Towns and Cities in the United States and Canada, Notes on the Artists and Publishers and a Union Catalog of their WOrk, 1825-1925.” The scholarship is impressive, as is the listing of 4480 lithographed views, many bird’s eye views. The definite work on the topic.
