    This consecutive run of 22 volumes includes photographers such as: Alvin Langdon Coburn (25, including 'Winter Shadows' and a portrait of Alfred Stieglitz); Edward J. Steichen (30, including 'Flat-Iron Evening', 'Cover design' and 'Experiment in three-colour Photography'); Gertrude Käsebier (12); Clarence H. White (10); Frederick H. Evans (5); David Octavius Hill (6); Eva Watson-Schütze (3, of 4); Heinrich Kühn (4); Robert Demachy (15); and of course Alfred Stieglitz himself (17).
