Early Iceland by Frederick W. W. Howell

2

Frederick W. W. Howell once amused many with his noteworthy book that shed insight and imagery of Iceland, visiting non-tourist places and landscapes unfamiliar to most travelers.

Twice did the author travel across the island -- in 1890 and 1891, as a mountaineer. Although little is known about Howell, his works were part of the Icelandic and Faroese photographs. The remarkable series showed how Iceland and the Faeroe Islands were on the edge of modernity.

The images were acquired by Daniel Willard Fiske around the turn of the century, becoming part of the "Fiske collection".
